Craft the feeling.

There are thousands of ways to construct a moment.  How do we forge the ultimate sensation in our audience? The structure of each moment tells its own story, builds on all that we have experienced thus far, and drives us forward to the next, culminating in emotional release... the desired effect.

Nothing like it!

I LOVE the art and craft of Editing. I always want to know how we can do better. Honest, creative partnering to bring out the best in the story and characters.

Who the hell am I?

Where did I come from?

I grew up in the arts, and the entertainment industry in New York; my father a musician, chef, and film editor. my mother was a Production Manager and Assistant Director. My start in entertainment was as a young child, acting and playing music. I was involved in plays and small roles in television and feature films, where I got to be an extra in the academy award winning film, KRAMER VS. KRAMER! Musically, I was drawn to percussion and singing. I played with several bands in my teen years in both capacities. Later, these talents were transmuted into the art and craft of film editing. I have since had the opportunity to work with some exceptional Hollywood talents such as Sam O'Steen, Mike Nichols, Alan J. Pakula, Don Zimmerman, and Sylvester Stallone. I now have over 25 years of filmmaking experience with more than 60 editing credits across a vast array of material, including Television movies, series, Feature Films, award winning mobile content, and more. I have also worked as a 2nd unit director and producer, and dabble in writing as well.
