About me:

Currently undergoing my second year of the BA (Hons) Film course at University of South Wales. I'm a highly ambitious individual capable of working well as part of a team and in using own initiative. Highly skilled in video editing, I like learning the theories of editing from books and improving my practical side by watching tutorials and speaking with industry professionals. I focus mainly in Premiere Pro, After Effects and Audition, but also skilled in and continuing to learn; Avid, Movavi, Photoshop, Final Cut Pro, DaVinci Resolve and Sony Vegas. A keen interest in videography and photography with on-going freelance experience, I enjoy making content for small businesses and global companies alike.
