About Me

Level 3 NVQ Grip, Grip Equipment, Key Grip UK

Biography

Six years as a Grip Equipment Technician for Arri Media (2000-06) allowed me to work with some of the best equipment in the industry. The job experience provided the foundation for me to become proficient in the rigging, use and maintenance of all grip equipment. I developed my constructive skills to design and build, spontaneously in the moment.

As a B camera Grip from 2007 I worked across Film, Television and Commercials; advancing my career for several years to develop as a fully competent and knowledgable Key Grip.

Health and safety has always been integral to my work and with a Level 3 NVQ in Professional Advanced Gripping I aim for the highest working standard as a Key Grip.
