When I was 18 years old, I watched my boss and mentor, Jeremy Wanek, working. His fingers were moving on the keyboard as if he was typing an email; but in fact, he was editing. From that moment on, I knew I wanted to work a keyboard in the way that he did. Graduating two years early with a BA in Media Arts, I have found my true love in editing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), promotional, and documentary work. I particularly am interested in the study of interviewing, questioning, and communications when it comes to on film interviews.
The ten yeas I had on my regional winning robotics team, R4: The Rio Rancho Robo Runners, changed what I saw for myself. I learned I could collide robotics, documentary film, and editing passions all into one.
While I love working in STEM, I am also interested in crime, promotional, and health documentary work. When I found out I had Lyme disease in 2015, I threw everything into my first documentary, Disappearing from Society. As I write this, it has about 100k views, and 2k+ shares with no money or advertisement backing it. It’s helped me to realize that even me, a beginner, could make something that meant something to so many people.
Maybe it’s cliche but my favorite word is innovation. I want to find new ways to do things, invent experiences for people to experience in day to day life. I see so many ways for film to enrich experiences for people,
