I am a storyteller and a craftswoman.
As a kid, I was always the one recounting what had happened – embellishing here, adding in a dramatic pause there – all in the name of telling the best version of the story.
At UC Berkeley, I studied literature and creative writing, before moving to New York to follow my dream of being a director. There, I directed narrative short films, web series and music videos, but something wasn’t sitting right.
I kept discovering again and again that my favorite part of the process was after production had wrapped, in the editing room. That was the place where you really got to put the pieces of the story together – just like I always had loved doing as a kid. That was where I discovered the kind of storyteller I always was and still am. So I followed my bliss and pivoted to a career in editing. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
My credits include lead editing campaign ads for progressive candidates in the lead up to the 2018 midterm elections with One Vote at a Time, editing on three seasons of YouTube Red’s original series, Escape the Night, editing branded content for Google and Lyft, and assistant editing two seasons of Netflix’s Making a Murderer. I am a member of IATSE Local 700 and can work on union and non-union projects.
My experiences as an editor and AE have given me the technical skills to stay detail-oriented and efficient in the edit, while my previous background as a 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, about a life changing week at a summer camp for teen activists.
