In 2019 Tom was awarded the Royal Television Society Award (North East) for Professional Excellence in Editing. The award was based on three examples including two episodes of The Dumping Ground and one episode of Hollyoaks. One of Tom's Dumping Ground episodes went on to be BAFTA nominated in 2019.
In recent years Tom has worked extensively on drama shows with plenty of visual effects in, and if you'd like to see examples of them, do get in touch.
Tom's recent credits include; Waterloo Road, Princess Mirror-Belle, Holby City, Lagging and The Dumping Ground, with all returning shows asking Tom back routinely.
