I'm an experienced 3-axis gimbal operator and technician based in London. 

I've been working with the Freefly MōVI since it hit the UK in 2013, taking delivery of one of the first MōVI M10s in the country and I've not looked back since. 

As an early adopter of this technology, I've learned through experience the advantages of each system be it Freefly MōVI, DJI Ronin or the Letus Helix.

My experience with gimbal technology includes television commercials, television drama, documentaries, feature films, short films, and music videos. I've taken the MōVI and other gimbal rigs to quite extreme lengths, using them in a wide range of applications including suspended from ropes, mounting on vehicles, operating from quad bikes, golf carts, flatbed trucks as well as rickshaws to achieve stable tracking shots at speed whilst being close to the action. 

I enjoy working with directors and DOPs to achieve ever more creative camera movements and relish the challenge of customizing the rig to try something new.
