This CV may be kept on file and distributed for employment purposes.


After 17 years as a staff editor at Sky working on a huge variety of genres across all Sky channels, Paul took the leap back into the freelance world.

Equally at home working on live studio support or fast turnaround rugby match openers as he is spending longer telling the story of football rivalries (& even cutting the promo for the Game Of Thrones series finale). Paul has not only the skills but also the passion for working with good people to make great programmes! Paul has a set up at home for remote editing.

Below are selected credits from the vast number amassed over his career...
