"The notion of directing a film is the invention of critics - the whole eloquence of cinema is achieved in the editing room." Walter Murch
 

 

I started editing fiction while in grad school for film. I relied heavily on my screenwriting skills and thought a lot about beats, moments, shifts.  I learned to listen for the right cuts and how to elevate good acting. I learned how to rewrite and let go of expectations.  After editing an abundance of short films, I moved towards documentary. I learned that less is more. I learned the power of score and the infinite importance of the transition. Industrials, commercials, and music videos all enhanced my rhythm and pacing. Most recently I have had the pleasure of cutting for a nightly news program that combined long lead documentary style story telling with breaking news immediacy.

Hello! Thanks for coming this far.  Here are some fun facts about me: Im a native New Yorker. I am writing a graphic novel about human perception and bodies. I never played a sport my entire life, and then ran a 1/2 marathon 2x last year.  I am a magical cook. I am a terrible speller. I will go anywhere and try anything at least once.  I love coffee more than I love most people. I am an amazing fantasy casting agent. I care about the world and try to make my place in it. Hopefully through our work- we can get somewhere. Write me.
