B etween Berlin and the UK, I am a freelance colourist as well as head of the German Film and Television Academy's UP.GRADE programmes - arguably the world's foremost and only long term course in the art and science of colour grading.

Post facilities I work at include:
ARRI, OM Studios, The Post Republic and the Ludwigsburg Film Academy.

I am grading with:
- Digital Vision's Nucoda
- Blackmagic Design's DaVinci Resolve
- FilmLight's Baselight
- FireFly Cinema's FirePost
- ColorFront's On-set Dailies

And in English. (German will need some more time).

If people ask me where I'm from then the answer isn't a quick one: British but raised in West Africa and having lived in a multitude of countries I consider myself a European with special connection to Scotland, the Baltic states, Poland, Hungary - and now Germany natürlich.

Before becoming a colourist I was a documentary camera operator, industrial photographer, photo retoucher, projectionist...amongst other cinema-related roles.
