About Me

I've been working in post-production for the last ten years and specifically within colour for the last six, during which I've been conforming, grading, onlining, assisting and delivering projects to spec and deadline regularly.

In the last three years I've worked as a dailies colourist on several major features such as Solo: A Star Wars Story, Mission Impossible: Fallout and Jonny English 3, a finishing colourist on five indie features and a restoration colourist on 15+ titles for distributors such as Arrow, Studio Canal, 88 Films and BFI. Additionally I've also worked as a digital lab operator on numerous projects such as Devs, Paddington 2, Holmes & Watson and Collette, and a Baselight assistant on projects such as Been So Long and Where Hands Touch.

With regards to software platforms I’ve been working with Resolve for the past six years and Baselight for the last four, with additional use of Daylight, Avid & Premiere Pro on a project dependant basis.

Due to the nature of my previous experience I'm quite comfortable running attended sessions with cinematographers, directors, producers and supervisors, both during pre-production and post. I'm also very familiar with camera formats, colour spaces and large scale production pipelines. I'm comfortable working in a production team and also being left to my own devices, and work well under pressure and to deadlines.
