A.C.E. Nominated Editor . Writer . Director . Producer . Champion Football Player
I discovered my love of editing in college and from that point on I set my intention on becoming an editor. That objective was fully realized fifteen years ago but in the genre of non-fiction. Recently, I’ve set another goal for myself as my passion has grown for narrative storytelling. I've cut drama, comedy and action short forms and I feel as though I'm ready to apply that experience to feature films and episodic television.
What I lack in experience with regards to scripted editing, I make up for with determination and confidence. I am no stranger to tight deadlines or working under pressure. I’ve always been told that I have a great sense of rhythm and instinct. I’ve spent a third of my life participating in team sports so I know how I know the importance of teamwork and as a result, I work well with others.
In addition, I feel that with my extensive non-scripted background, I have a unique skill set in the art of storytelling considering the story is born in the editing room. So, with the ability to bridge gaps, I feel that I would be a great addition to your editorial team.
In my efforts of making the transition and navigating the world of scripted, I’ve reached out to established editors in hopes of gaining insight and a sense of mentorship for which I am greatly appreciative. Some of these editors would include: Lillian Benson, Joi McMillon, Nena Erb and Erik Anderson.
I’m enthusiastic about what the future holds for entertainment and the opportunities that present themselves as I pursue a new passion.
And, here's a fun fact: I played women's tackle football for ten years and coached for three. I retired after blowing both my knees but not before winning a national championship.
So, I'm no stranger to hard work and determination!
