I am an award winning editor who has worked in London and New York.

I have edited a wide range of documentary subjects including science, art, current affairs and history. Style varies from observational to presenter lead to narrated stories. I love to work on independent films - quirky, problematic and original. Latest offering in that sector, 'Edge of Obedience'.

In the U.S. I worked for many major broadcasters and directors, including Oscar nominees Jonathan Stack (‘The Farm’) and Rachel Grady (‘Jesus Camp’). I also advise independent filmmakers as their Story Consultant.

I give talks at Women In Film and Television on storytelling in the edit and have taught at universities and film schools around the world including New York University where I lectured for 18 months.
