_Editing is all about a good story… here’s mine.

_I was raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana & Atlantic City, New Jersey…

_During college I was a club VJ. I mixed psychedelic glitch video live on projectors in major clubs in Boston alongside many great DJs…

_Later in New York City I worked as a Key Set PA on 30 Rock and Law & Order…

_I joined The Motion Picture Editor’s Guild and worked as an VFX Editor & Assistant Editor on studio films…

_Currently I edit films.

_My best film, Filipino kidnapping thriller “Graceland” won an audience award at the Tribeca Film Festival and was named one of the top 100 Films to ever play the Tribeca Film Festival. I recently edited director Ron Morales’s newest film.

_I was elevated to an editor on “Mr. Robot” by Sam Esmail.

_Lionsgate released the mind bending sci-fi thriller “Life Like” which I edited.

_”The Virtuoso” starring Anson Mount, Anthony Hopkins, and Abbie Cornish was released theatrically nationwide April 30th, 2021 by Lionsgate Films.

_Please feel free to reach out to me about any project large or small. My main criteria when picking a project is: Do I like the script & Do I like the people involved?

I have been in the industry since 2005.
