I started out as an editor and have fine tuned the art of subtle editing, improving performance and narrative pacing. I have continued to take this learning into directing work, focusing on performance and subtlety.

On my site you will find trailers for some of the feature films I have edited, along with short films and commercials that I have both directed and edited.


• Studied Film and Screen writing in Los Angeles at the University of California. • Bachelor of Arts degree in Film and Television from the University of Cape Town. (WON THE ROB COHEN AWARD FOR BEST DIRECTION) • Also completed a certified course in Video Production through the University of the Nations. (WON BEST EDITOR AWARD 2002)

I work on Avid, Premiere Pro and DaVinci Resolve both internationally and from my own boutique edit suite here at the Woodstock Exchange in Cape Town. The edit suite boasts a broadcast monitor with DaVinci control panel, projector screen and THX surround sound, good for director’s viewings and occasional movie screenings with unlimited popcorn.
