With a proven track record in delivering high quality work, Mairin has a natural instinct and subtle understanding of storytelling when bringing ideas to life on the screen.

Skilled in Avid and Final Cut Pro, Mairin is beloved by all clients and is happy to work independently or with a team. She is a ‘go-to’ troubleshooter with a reputation for turning around edits in crisis and for creatively collaborating with directors, producers and commissioners to realise the story’s full potential.
