My love for documentaries has led to a variety of feature editing work, as well as short-form, doc-style branded films for a wide range of clients. My strengths are in the storytelling process: exploring all the possibilities of what a scene can be to create emotional and authentic films.
I started as an Avid Apprentice at NYC’s Lost Planet Editorial in 2000, before relocating to the West Coast for 12 years, editing and teaching. I returned to NYC in 2012, and cut documentary and narrative shorts, commercials, and features.
Currently, I'm finishing the feature documentary City of Joel, directed by Jesse Sweet, which takes viewers inside the insular Satmar Hasidic Village of Kiryas Joel in upstate New York.
Films that toured the 2015 festival circuit: two documentary features, King Georges (Sundance Selects) and We’re Not Blood; and a narrative short, Take What You Can Carry, directed by Matt Porterfield.
