Personal Summary

I'm a Los Angeles based video editor with experience in television, social media, advertising, live events, VFX heavy projects and more. I worked on projects with a wide range of budgets and creative freedom. I have extensive assistant editing and graphics experience, so I'm comfortably working solo and doing a lot of graphics work.
