Film Editor

Off-Line & On-Line

Originally from Chicago, I've now been working in the film and television community in Los Angeles for over 20 years and have been a freelance editor for over 15 years.  I started out as a Title and Camera Supervisor shooting on a 35mm Oxberry Animation Stand (like they did at Disney with cel animation) at a Title & Optical Post Facility. I created 35mm main and end titles for features and trailers for companies such as Sony, Paramount, and Lionsgate to name a few.  I then continued on in post-production and worked my way up to a post-coordinator on movie of the weeks for Hallmark Hall of Fame (CBS) and Warner Brothers.  During that time I was a Co-Producer on the award winning documentary MISSING PRESUMED DEAD: The Search for America's POWs narrated by Ed Asner and then I was a Producer and Director of Photography on the award winning sports documentary THE LONG GREEN LINE.


As I continued working my way up through editorial into being a Film Editor I also went back to school to receive my Masters Degree in Film Editing at the American Film Institute (AFI) where I was mentored by esteemed Film Editor Donn Cambern (Easy Rider, Ghostbusters II, The Bodyguard).  

As you can see I edit a wide range of content and genres.  I've worked hard over the years to hone my storytelling abilities as a creative film editor that I'm able to successfully bring any story off the pages and onto the big screen.
