Dave oversees all aspects of post within Lion Television on a technical level. Streamlining workflows, future proof systems and ensuring Lion is able to cope with the ever changing technical demands of modern television production. Working closely with his Co-Head of Post, Jayesh Makwana, they manage 24 offline and two online Avid edit suites across all UK sites. Dave has a thorough knowledge of filming standards, camera formats, file types from SD to 8K and everything in between. Even the dreaded DPP AS11 file delivery (though it's really not all that bad).
Having grown up in California, Dave moved to the UK in 2001 with a degree in Communications. Prior to working at Lion, he worked for similar Indies such as KEO films and freelanced as an Offline Editor. Starting from the ground up Dave "earned his wings" as a runner in the mean streets of Soho, gaining invaluable experience in facilities like Nats Post Production (now Evolutions).
