My previous education was at the Russian Film School in St Petersburg as well as studying the Digital Film Course at RCS (formally the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama). I am willing to relocate (OR flexible in travelling), and able to adjust quickly to any environment or city, exemplified by my vast and varied experience working in Glasgow, Manchester and London.

I am a skilled AVID Offline Editor with knowledge of FinalCut 7 and Premier Pro. For the last seven years I have been working on many projects from short dramas to current affairs programmes for BBC, STV, Channel4 and other esteemed Broadcasters and Online distributors. Prior to that, I was employed as an Edit Assistant for established companies and post-production facilities in London, Manchester and Glasgow.

My dream is to be an Editor on a ground-breaking film that will produce a significant change and trend in the film industry. Equally, I am confident working on current affairs and factual documentaries, as well as character led series. I can pick specific points of an argument and realise it through a distinctive narrative, transforming it into a solid documentary. I have been praised in the past for my music track choices which fit the tone of the scene, the ability to create rhythm, pace and tension whilst telling an extraordinary story. Due to my wide range of experience, I have obtained detailed knowledge of the Post-Production process to be able to cover all genres. This experience has helped me grow stylistically and technically in parallel with the industry as well as develop a strong level of expertise in my profession. Read Less
