About Me

FILM EDITOR

Born and raised in Chicago, I moved to Los Angeles in ’92 to begin my editing career. During this time, I established myself as a versatile editor, working with music video artists like Aerosmith, Red Hot Chili Peppers, NAS, LL Cool J, Kid Rock, Nicki Minaj and commercial clients such as Reebok, Nike, Bose, J. Crew, Michelob Ultra, McDonald’s and Kohl’s. In 2010, I accompanied 30 Seconds to Mars on tour in North America to edit the music video for “Closer to the Edge;” the following year, I cut the music video for “This Is War” while touring with the band in Europe.

I started my feature film career with the movie "Between Us" directed by Dam Mirvish (Co-founder of the Slamdance film festival). That film won the Grand Prize at the Bahamas International Film Festival and won the Audience Award at the Oldenburg Film Festival.  I also edited the Green Day documentary "Heart like a hand Grenade". The band released the film 10 years later and finally made it's theatrical debut in 2015. In 2016 I edited a short film for Actor Gabourey Sidibe's directorial debut "The Tale of Four". It went on to win the VOW Film Festival - The Voice of a Woman Award, Ibffnashville - Best Social Justice Film Award and the Black Star Fest - Audience Award for Best Narrative Short.

2017 was a busy year with editing the film "They" directed by Anahita Ghazvinizadeh and cutting Pearl Jam "Let's Play Two" directed by Danny Clinch.

 

They premiered at the 2017 Canne Film Festival and was nominated for the Golden Camera and Queer Palm award. It was also nominated for the Grand Prize Chéries-Chéris and won the George C. Lin Emerging Filmmaker Award at the San Diego Asian Film Festival.

 

My latest feature film "BOO!" directed by Luke Jaden premiered at the Brooklyn Horror Film Festival and was produced by Brian Kavanaugh-Jones.
