About Me

I think my biggest strengths as an editor come from my background in writing and story producing. I love diving into character-driven material, and can quickly get at the dramatic core of a story so that more time can be spent shaping, polishing, and digging up those little nuggets of gold that make a scene feel organic and important. I believe every story is potentially universal, but only when you get the details right!

From a technical editing perspective, I bring 10 years of post experience to the table but I am always looking for ways to up my game and regularly invest in professional development to add more tools to the toolbox. My training in music also helps me to elevate cuts to the next level emotionally and stylistically.

On any job I take, I work collaboratively, put in the extra hours to get things done when they need to get done, and address notes both creatively and thoroughly. For me, every project is an opportunity to tell a solid, well-paced story, with three-dimensional characters, humor, high stakes, and heart.

I have been in the industry since 2010.
