This is me.

How I think :
The stories that make an impact are the stories that make us feel something. We connect with what we're watching when we can relate to it.  As a producer and editor - it's my job to do just that.  Make you feel something.

About me: 
I grew up in Los Angeles in the small hippie town of Topanga Canyon. As a kid, I was always adventuring into the state park and making movies in the backyard. My professional background is in print journalism. I was a feature writer and later became managing editor of three award-winning magazines in Seattle. But my roots brought me back home. I come from a family of film editors. Both my dad and my big brother are incredibly talented storytellers. Needless to say, we talk a lot about movies at dinner. 

What I've done: 
I cut the music video "I Would've Loved You," a duet between Jake Hoot and Kelly Clarkson which gained over 8 million views online and hit number one on iTunes for music videos. I cut the video campaign "Vocally" a collaboration between Billboard and Ally Bank that profiles music artists on the rise.  I produced and edited the six-part online series “DT Riders” for legendary surfboard company Donald Takayama. We interviewed each surfer on the company’s professional team for an intimate look at their relationship with surfing and their admiration for the man who built their boards.  I cut and co-developed the series "Make Your Move" on alternative female athletes with director and former Sports Illustrated photographer Taylor Ballantyne.  I'll always love where I started - making promotional videos for nonprofits that highlight unsung heroes driving change in meaningful ways.
