I'm a highly experienced post professional, uniquely skilled in bridging the technical workflows/processes of post-production with creative storytelling. This is especially valuable for independent films that may require a professional editor who can carry a project in both a creative and technical capacity — a highly effective editor/assistant combination. I'm very resourceful and bring a strong work ethic to every project, earning client trust and inspiring confidence. I have a keen interest in scripted narrative projects and I'm open to opportunities on both non-union and union films (rostered assistant editor with union eligibility).

Brian has proven himself a unique source of innovation and resourcefulness. I have watched him put out dozens of major technical fires, and turn around deliverables under extreme deadlines. He has helped me rework edits that were otherwise stagnating, and consider perspectives that require a truly modern "edge".
As an Editor, Brian is the perfect combination of the creative and the technical. He has a complete inside-and-out knowledge of editing software and workflow and he executes changes quickly and effectively. But, he is also very personable and asks all the pertinent questions related to story and the visual frame. Every project we've done together has been a success because of him.
Brian was one of the key people who contributed so much to the post production process of my feature length documentary. He is a dedicated, hard working filmmaker with a great attention to detail. He is also an amazing, creative problem solver and just a wonderful loyal friend -- an essential person to have on any project.
