In the beginning, I honed my skills by making bad movies shorter; now, 18 years later, I have had the pleasure of working with acclaimed directors and on projects I am proud to show my grandparents. Whether it’s a music video, short, or feature I approach the project with enthusiasm and with the right amount of creative vision and anal retentiveness…every frame counts! I got my first taste of the industry with a STARZ internship my final year at the University of Denver, where I was a communication/philosophy major.  Upon graduation and focusing on film, I landed an assistant editor position on Before Sunset under Sandra Adair.   My first feature as lead editor was Kat Candler’s directorial debut, Jumping Off Bridges.  Some other key credits include: Mitch Schultz’s ground breaking documentary, DMT: The Spirit Molecule, Matt Muir and Chris Ohlson’s, Thank You A Lot, and the genre bending feature, The Teller and the Truth. I came full circle editing the much anticipated Louis Black/Karen Bernstein documentary Richard Linklater: dream is destiny.  My most recent film, I'm Gonna Make You Love Me just premiered at DocNYC and is playing as a "festival favorite" at SXSW 2020.  My favorite movie is Delicatessen; I am uncannily good at cribbage, and had perfect attendance in high school.
