I have been a gymnast, a band geek, a flag twirler, a dancer and a choreographer, and it is in the entertainment industry that I have found my true passion in post-production.

I have worked in television and independent features as an editor and colorist. Currently I am a lead editor for some of NBC/Universal’s cable networks and I have worked on documentary features that have been released worldwide by Miramax and Starz.
