I have been working as a film-maker since 2005. After working in broadcast television as a sound recordist, I migrated to video, firstly as a cameraman and editor in the online and corporate arenas, before making the plunge into the freelance world of film making in 2014. I split my time predominantly freelancing as a video editor & cameraman, working for various production companies as well as producing my own films, based under the name ‘Blacktide Phonic Visual’.

I help businesses, musicians & individuals tell their message & further their reach through video, working closely with clients from the inception of the idea through to delivery. I manage each stage of the filmmaking process, using a talented team of animators, colourists and production experts.

Editing: I am an experienced editor working on range of projects, predominantly corporate, documentaries, graphics & music videos. I worked for 7 years as a full time editor/graphics lead before becoming freelance. I mostly working remotely on a fibre internet connection downloading footage and working in Premiere & After Effects.

Camera: Over 10 years experience as a lighting cameraman; filming interviews, music content, educational, bespoke visuals & directing music videos. I have the latest production equipment and have filmed in over 20 countries.

Composition: I have been writing and composing music all my life, using mostly an ambient approach. I use a range of organic, VST and analogue instruments. I produce all the music & sound design to my films which helps bring a cohesive approach & also produce sound design & music for web, television and short films.
