I want to be a part of sharing meaningful stories with people that have a positive impact on their lives. I love really deep collaboration, and taking concepts that may be hard to articulate and giving them a voice on the screen. 

 

My great strength is helping directors and producers come together and marry ideas into a singular vision. Because at the end of the day story is king, isn't it?

 

I’m very creatively oriented. I excel at reading performance, dealing with complex structures, and crafting each scene, knowing through experience that the final version of the story is created in the editing room. I also personally craft the music and sound so that they are married to the picture in an elegant and refined way to express the intent of the edit.

 

In short...any issue that comes up in production will not stop me from telling your story in post.

My most recent editorial work, Arcadian, starring Nicolas Cage, Jaeden Martell, and Maxwell Jenkins is set to premiere at SXSW 2024. Other feature film credits include Netflix’s Falling for Christmas starring Lindsay Lohan, and Inheritance, starring Simon Pegg and Lily Collins, which was featured at the 2020 Tribeca Film Festival. I also have extensive experience in Television including Peacock’s Pitch Perfect: Bumper in Berlin starring Adam DeVine, the second season of Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist starring Jane Levy for NBC, and NEXT starring John Slattery for Fox.

 

I’m also committed to mentoring and helping young editors achieve their goals in post and for the last few years I’ve been an ACE Internship sponsor. 

 

I’m Los Angeles based and I look forward to working with you and sharing in this collaborative process  to create a phenomenal version of your story.
