Personal Summary

I'm an Emmy and Peabody Award winning Editor who specializes in documentaries, based in Los Angeles.  I've cut feature length documentaries and hour-long episodes of documentary television for networks such as PBS, National Geographic Channel, Discovery, Smithsonian Channel, A&E, MSNBC and more.  I'm very fast with a strong storytelling background -- in fact I've received numerous writer and producer credits on many of the projects I've worked on.

Here's a link to my imdb page which includes a few more credits, as well.
