I am an incredibly passionate editor and have worked on many different projects from corporate films to music videos to entertainment stories and everything in between. While my passion lies in editing I have a firm knowledge of motion graphics and constantly integrate video with motion graphics.

I have worked on and can use a whol variety of editing software but my preference is with Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere. I also know how to use After Effects.

I have my own editing suite which has the Adobe CS5 suite and Final Cut Pro.

•Worked a six month contract as an editor and camera man for Zoopy.com. My roles included filming and editing current events, such as The Joburg Experience and Mika Stefanoi’s Birthday party into 90 second videos.
Day to day I edited international stories with footage from sources such as Reuters and Splash on Adobe Premiere and added straps and transitions using After Effects.
