Starting at 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, garnering a few awards along the way.

Upon moving to Hawaii, I began working at local TV stations and continued making filmmaking.  I gained a wealth of experience producing, directing, shooting and editing on both local and national productions. A year after creating a local public access surf show called “H30-TV”, it was picked up by the local Fox Network and then shortly was syndicated nationally on ESPN / Prime Ticket.

Upon returning to Los Angeles in 1999, I spent the first six months editing infommercials. Later that year, Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE) hired me as their Senior Marketing Editor shortly after hiring me as a freelance editor for the HBO First Look special entitled “The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc”. Other HBO & Starz specials I created were for “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 trilogies, editing all the montages for the films as well as working on 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 from start to finish. 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.

After 3 seasons as an editor for 20th Television on both Divorce Court and Judge Alex, I spent 2 seasons with Quark Entertainment as a Producer/Editor on Flip My Food. During that period, I also worked as an editor for NBC Dateline, The Today Show and Nightly News. In 2015, I moved to New Orleans and continued another season on Flip My Food. I then worked as a Producer/Editor for two crime shows called “It Takes a Killer” and “Corrupt Crimes”. Thereafter, I worked as a Producer/Editor for a voice talent show called “Sing Like A Star.” In 2018 I moved to Atlanta to work on Lauren Lake’s Paternity Count and Couple’s Court with the Cutlers for 2 seasons. While on hiatus, I worked at CBS New York on “Whistleblower.” So far this year I’ve worked on 2 true crime shows: “Your Worst Nightmare,” (ID Channel) and “Injustice With Nancy Grace,” (Oxygen) and am currently working on Divorce Court (season 22).

As an editor, I have a strong background in producing, directing, camera work and music. As a “Preditor” (Producer/Editor), I am able to edit quickly, efficiently and creatively. I am very easy-going and collaborate extremely well with everyone.
