Profile

Josh started in the industry in 2017 making the move from down under (Australia), to begin working towards his aspirations of becoming an editor. During this time he has grown and developed to become a knowledgeable, efficient and composed edit assistant - always going above and beyond to meet the needs of the client.

He has been developing his skills at a number of post houses in an edit assistant role including Radiant Post Production, Evolutions TV, Moving Picture Co and Virtual Post Production (and occasionally freelancing at Pavilion Works LTD). Here he spent time as an integral part of the team, where his role included supporting the growing demands of busy edit suites.

Josh has excellent interpersonal skills and is able to quickly build good working relationships. This paired with his passion for broadcast media, resilience, and experience working under pressure in a fast-paced environment would make him a great asset to any edit team.
