Why he loves what he does

I’d like to think that being a keen drummer gives me an advantage, enhancing the pace and rhythm of my edits. This might be true, or it may just mean I’m good at making loud noises. Regardless, combining my three passions of film, music and video games, into what I do for a living, is a joy. When I’m not editing, I’ll be found riding trails on my mountain bike (fingers very close to the brakes) and also justifying to my wife, why I need to add yet another board game to my already excessive collection.
