I have many years of experience as a Producer, Director and Editor both in Hawaii, Los Angeles and New Orleans. From Entertainment to Commercial Production, from News and Music Videos to Documentaries, I’ve worked in every production genre, editing and producing Features, Trailers, TV Spots, Promos, Sizzle Reels, Featurettes, Vignettes, EPKs, News, Sports, Music Videos, DVD & Web Content, Documentaries, Television Production: Episodic and Reality, Commercial Spots and much more. Having a strong background in music has influenced my cutting style.
Starting from an early age growing up in Los Angeles, I began to take an interest in film production – shooting, directing and editing my first film at the age of 11 and then continuing to immerse myself in film and TV production throughout high school and university, winning many festival awards.
Upon moving to Hawaii, I began working in local TV stations and continued making films and garnered more awards. I gained a lot of experience in producing, directing, cinematography and editing on both local and national productions. A year after creating a local public access surf show “H30-TV”, we syndicated the show to the local Fox channel as well as nationally to ESPN / Prime Ticket.
I returned to Los Angeles in 1999 and spent six months editing infommercials. Sony Pictures Entertainment hired me as the Senior Marketing Editor after hiring me as a freelance editor for the HBO First Look special “The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc”. Other HBO & Starz specials have included: “Spider-Man”, “The Panic Room”, “The Smurfs”, “Vertical Limit” and many others. One year later at SPE, while editing a scene for Comic-Con at Spider-Man Editorial, Sam Raimi personally recruited me to work as the Associate Picture Editor on the Spider-Man trilogy, editing all the montages for the films as well as editing many other scenes. I worked closely with Sam to create the international cuts for all three films, personally editing and overseeing the entire post-production process of these cuts.
During my 12 years at Sony Pictures Entertainment Marketing, I worked on over 100 films, creating hundreds of hours of content and working closely with all major talent, producers and directors that came through the studio.
