I am an offline editor with twelve years experience.

Having started my career editing commercial content, TV adverts and music videos, the past five years I increasingly focused on documentaries.

Editing documentaries combines my passion for narrative and storytelling with the craft of finding rhythm and compelling aesthetics.

My recent work has been seen by audiences internationally, including feature showcases at festivals such as Kendal Film Festival, Cape Town Film Festival, Woodpecker International Film Festival, Tampere Film Festival and Glasgow Film Festival.

I worked for BBC and STV, both on standalone documentaries and weekly, nationally aired series.

Below are some examples of my work:

Documentary ‘Kyle Falconer - Love and Chaos’
Production: BBC Scotland
Director: Lori Duncan Allan and Ainsley Bowman

Documentary ‘Farewell to Adventure’
Produced by Noe Mendelle
Directed by Chris Prescott
Vancouver Mountain Film Festival 2022 – Best Adventure Film Award
Sheffield Adventure Film Festival 2022 – Spirit of Adventure Award

TV series ‘Scary Adult Things’
Production: Studio Something for BBC Scotland
Director: Duncan Cowles

Commercial 'Have a Wonderful Pint'
