For over a decade I have made post-production a part of my identity, dabbling in nearly every area. Most credit rolls, however, list me as “editor” in some capacity. Since 2016, I have professionally been an assistant, online, or main editor. I also feel confident as a post-production supervisor and/or coordinator, and can comfortably work as a DIT.
What I have internalized from every position is that everything requires an elite amount of attention to detail. Whether noticing small glitches during data wrangling or QCing a show for rigid broadcast standards, my aim is to identify and fix anything that could distract from the heart of your project.
Many genres (including new media) are intriguing to me, but I find most of my fulfillment in piecing together a fascinating documentary. If something I edit can impact the world in a positive way, I am eagerly involved.
Honest communication creates the foundation of a strong relationship (professional and personal). If you are looking for an editor that tailor your project to specific standards, listens to and acts on your genuine feedback, and adapt to changes quickly, your search has come to an end.
When I am not hiding behind a screen, I am probably reorganizing a cabinet or closet. I enjoy spending time volunteering at my local genealogy research center to help others learn their history. I value time spent helping the youth at my church understand their ability to not just be future leaders, but current leaders. During the winter I can be found playing in the snow, wishing for more, or both. My knack for dad jokes (gifted to me by my mother) is second to pun.
