About Us

I am a freelance video editor with over 15 years of professional experience in creative fields, including nine years operating my own award-winning video production studio. Collaborating with small teams is where I thrive most. I’m able to handily manage multiple time sensitive projects simultaneously, and I never get discouraged by the oft repeated “I don’t know what I want, but I’ll know it when I see it.”

When it comes to what I love doing most, I used to feel like it was whatever I wasn’t doing in the moment. If I was editing–I wanted to be filming. As my career has progressed, I’ve found what I really love is simply the right project, doing something that mattered and being able to make an impact.

I describe my editing style as akin to sculpting clay (which might be pretty obvious that I don’t actually do). The footage is my hunk of clay to mold, shape, whittle down, and maybe add back on. I don’t start at the beginning and finish at the end; it’s a little bit messy sometimes. But the lack of constraints is how I find the story.

We have been in the industry since 2006.
