I am a storyteller and a craftswoman.
I began my journey studying and writing fiction at UC Berkeley, where a handful of my short stories were published in The Berkeley Fiction Review and The Cal Literary Arts Magazine. After graduating with a BA in English, I wrote and directed narrative short films, web series and music videos, but my favorite part of the process was always in the editing room, where you got to really find the heart of the story. So I decided to pivot and focus on a career in editing.
I landed my first post production job as an assistant editor on the Netflix original documentary series, Making a Murderer, and went on to assist on various series and feature documentaries, before making the switch to editing full time.
My editing credits include the YouTube Red Original series, Escape the Night, narrative and documentary short films, branded content and my passion project: a vegan cooking channel on YouTube.
My experience as an AE has given me the technical skills to stay detail-oriented and efficient in the edit, while my previous background as a writer and director empowers me to approach the story with an eye for the big picture. I bring this one-two punch of art + craft with me into every project I cut, no matter the genre, format or scope.
I am currently in post production on my first feature documentary as director and editor, This is What an Activist Looks Like, which is expected to premiere in 2019.
