About


Hello and thanks for visiting!

I'm a freelance editor based in Los Angeles, where I work on feature films. 

My background also includes episodic television, commercials, stadium concert screens, promos, sizzle and presentation reels, EPKs and more.

I've had the honor of assistant editing on features with filmmakers including director Ewan McGregor and editor Melissa Kent (American Pastoral), director Kyle Patrick Alvarez (Stanford Prison Experiment) and editor Nat Sanders (Short Term 12, Laggies).

My editing career began in Chicago, where I also worked for several years in non-profit development. In 2003, I moved to Los Angeles, where I attended the MFA film/video program at California Institute of the Arts. My own short films and videos have screened internationally at film festivals, cultural organizations, universities and microcinemas.

In addition to my film work, I'm a practitioner of yoga, currently fulfilling requirements of my 200 and 300 hour (RYS) certifications. In 2016, I also completed a teacher training through the Prison Yoga Project. This program brings yoga and mindfulness practices into prisons and trauma-impacted communities across the country.
