Now edit producing as well as editing, my goal in either role is to tease the most compelling story possible from the rushes. I am organised, thorough and aware of constraints on time and resources.

With many dozens of hours of broadcast television under my belt, I have edited a wide variety of programming from documentaries (Modern Times, Equinox and other single docs and series) to corporates, commercials, promos, entertainment shows and drama, have edit produced ob docs, directed magazine items for both UK and American broadcasters and have produced and scripted promotional material. I love working with observational footage and get a kick from thinking through and coordinating technically and logistically challenging edits.

I have an excellent knowledge of Forscene - including multi-camera syncing, logging and editing - and exchanging files with Avid. (Did you know that multi-camera syncing is quicker and cheaper to do in Forscene than in Avid? - Most productions don't.)

I am committed to making eye-catching, accessible and intelligent television and am determined that both I and those I work with should always enjoy the process.

I am a member of the Guild of British Film and Television Editors. Read Less

I've worked with Leo on numerous Discovery series. Don't let the silences fool you. Leo is one of the most thoughtful, intelligent and diligent editors in the business. He's not only a great editor, he also has a deep understanding of how story works and how to mould the best narrative and tension from his material. He's also a thoroughly lovely and wise man.

Sam Maynard, EVP US Factual Programming at Raw
