Where are you based? Brooklyn, NY
Where’d you live before that? NJ, Ohio, Sydney, and Portland, OR.
What program do you use to edit? My current preference is Premiere Pro. I do titles/VFX in After Effects. Also happy to cut in Avid. If you’re looking to have full-on animated sequences in your project, I know a lot of great illustrators/animators too.
Do you have your own office? Yup I do! Happy to work at my office, or on site, or a combo of the two.
Do you do color correcting and sound mixing as well? Sure do!
For short-form content, I do the color and mix as well. For features/TV, I lock picture and it heads over to those departments for mastering.
What do you like to do when you’re not editing? Go on road trips, visit roadside attractions, ride my bike all over NYC, play retro video games, watch cult classics and documentaries. I also host a monthly trivia night called Trivia Adventure at C’mon Everybody in Brooklyn.
What topics interest you the most? My favorite thing about working in documentary is learning about people and topics I wouldn’t have known about otherwise. But definitely bonus points for projects about outsiders/underdog stories, artists, nerds, technology, Internet culture, queer people or celebrity culture.
When in the process do people hire you? Anywhere from the initial project pitch to when they’re deep in post-production with a deadline looming and another editor that isn’t working out and they call me to fix it.
This sounds great, what are the first steps to chat with about you potentially editing my project? Awesome! Use the form to the right here and send me: 1) a synopsis 2) your timeline and 3) If available - a sample or trailer (10 min or less). Looking forward to hearing about your project!
