Public bio

I am a creative film editor and filmmaker. My journey into the creative world began with a passion for photography, which lead me to study photojournalism at Columbia College in Chicago. After taking my first film course, I was hooked. Shifting my attention towards cinematography and editing, I received my BFA in the fall of 1999. As an editor working across formats-from documentaries, broadcast commercials, and feature films to television series and branded content videos-I strive to push the limits of my storytelling abilities.
