About Me

I'm a video editor who also writes, shoots and produces. Experienced and award-winning, short-form to feature films, I have served happy clients who have hired me to work in more than 20 countries around the world.

I think video editing is like scoring music. It is the final surgical pass and its crucial that a top video editor not only have the technical and creative skill – but also an innate sense of rhythm.

I have brought my own musical past to serving a long list of clients across several industries. This includes Fortune 500 companies: NIKE, INTEL and STARBUCKS to well-known A-list Film Directors, Gus Van Sant, Chel White, Jim Blashfield. For PBS I have served on teams large and small for educational series like NOVA ScienceNOW at WGBH in Boston, as well as for OPB in Portland and Arizona Public Media in Tucson. As an Executive Producer, I parlayed my hands-on production experience into developing a series from scratch and produced a pilot, a magazine column, a radio spot campaign and a website. This garnered attention from CNN and other media.

As I have mastered my craft, I have also sought to merge my experience with my other passion – psychology – and apply it in classrooms, teaching at local colleges and other institutions. This includes developing and teaching a class curriculum at a local charter high school.

I also love to dance. Music is magic!
