Filmmaker / Film Editor
Writer / Book Designer
I am an award-winning FILMMAKER and WRITER, with a wealth of additional creative experience. I grew up in Bristol, and studied film and photography in London.
I am a writer who designs his own books:
Ukraine at War: Street Art, Posters + Poetry will be out in November 2023. More here.
Bosnian War Posters was published in May 2022. More here.
Hairan (working title) is currently being completed. More here.
ABC of Film & Video Editing will be out in 2023. It is currently in the final stages of being edited. More here.
Film Step by Step: Methodology of Self-Awareness, by Carolina Rivas, was published in Barcelona in 2020. I edited and redesigned this Spanish-language cinema book, which was originally published in Mexico in 2010.
I have written for various print and online publications, including Eye magazine, London. More here.
I have been editing and sound-designing films since the 1980s—first on celluloid and digitally since the mid-1990s. Today I mainly work in Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe Audition, but I also have working knowledge of Avid, Final Cut Pro, Lightworks and Protools.

Apart from designing my own books (Ukraine at War; Bosnian War Posters; ABC of Film Editing; Hairan; etc.) I also design books for other authors. I am currently working on a four-volume illustrated biography of the musical Strauss Dynasty. And I will shortly be starting work on the complete plays of Anton Chekhov.
I started teaching film editing in Mexico in 2006. After moving to Barcelona in 2012, I became the head of film editing at La Casa del Cine; I stayed in this position until 2021. I now give classes in film editing at ECCIT, Lleida, Catalonia. I give private film editing classes if requested, and teach all Videovalores courses.
