Studio City, California
I am an editor and director based in Los Angeles, CA, who has worked on various independent feature films, short films, documentaries and commercials, . I recently edited the narrative feature films "bUMS" and "Best Mom", as well as "Buddy Solitaire" which played at the Cinequest Film Festival, Heartland Film Festival, and Newport Beach Film Festival. I've also edited numerous narrative and documentary shorts, including "Rooted" and "Japantown", which both again premiered at the Cinequest Film Festival. I directed and edited the short film "Head Wound", which made the rounds on the festival circuit. And during Covid I directed and edited the short film "Secret Lives of Youtubers".
A work is completely transformed in the editing room, and I love molding it and shaping it in order to convey the best work possible. I am an excellent editor of story and performance, as well as action and comedy. I love crafting the rhythms of the film in order to best convey the emotions and story of the piece. I am well versed in Adobe Premiere, After Effects, Photoshop, Avid, and Final Cut.
Recently working as a director as well, I am great at working with actors and bringing out their best emotions, as well as shaping the dynamics and blocking of scenes. I'm very visually minded as well, with a strong sense of cinematography, shot-listing and camera blocking. So working with a cinematographer, as well as the production designer and various other creatives on set, comes quite natural to me as well.
Film is a wonderful collaborative process, and I adore being a part of it, whether it's as the editor shaping it or the director overseeing it from start to finish.
During the Pandemic I also came out as transgender, and am now living my best life. As such, I especially have a strong interest in productions and stories involving the LGBTQ community and social activism.
I have been in the industry since 2015.
