I’m an indie film editor based in NY.

 

I am not defined by any one genre: I have edited drama, comedy and thriller movies. Regardless of the type of project, I am drawn to complex character studies and put my entire being into each film. Editing is not just a job to me, it is my passion. I take extreme care with every cut and will go above and beyond to make sure every choice supports the story and emotion of any given moment.

My favorite thing about editing is the collaboration that happens with the director. I love the energy in the room when one idea snowballs into another and suddenly things are clicking into place. I am at my best when I have room to explore the material and a trusting partner to collaborate with. That way we can make the most interesting decisions and the film can truly shine.

Most recently I was an additional editor on Lena Headey’s directorial debut The Trap starring Michelle Fairley. Other works include Snakehead which premiered at TIFF, Paramount’s Alieu the Dreamer which won BET’s Project Cre8, and Milkwater which won Best Screenplay at the Brooklyn Film Festival and Best Narrative Feature at the Bushwick Film Festival.

The Hollywood Reporter said:

“the characters and situations develop in textured ways that gradually pull you in and engage your affections.” and “The modulation from light comedy into more layered dramatic territory is deftly handled”.

 

Short films include Tangles & Knots which premiered at SXSW and Berlinale, and Let Liv which premiered at Tribeca. I associate edited the documentary series Time: The Kalief Browder Story, which premiered at Sundance. Other documentary credits include The Color of Care, in which I worked with Oscar nominated director Yance Ford.

 

One of the things I’m most proud of is my volunteer work with the Blue Collar Post Collective (BCPC). BCPC is a grassroots non- profit whose mission is to support emerging talent in post-production. As I grow in my career, I want to pull people up as others have done for me. I served as Co-President of the organization for two years, leading a team of volunteers worldwide and growing the community in New York. BCPC provides financial and professional support to individuals working in film and television and drives diversity initiatives across the media industry. I spend a lot of my free time organizing educational events, mentoring recent graduates, and sharing what I’ve learned with the post-production community coming up behind me.
