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 BFA in Media Arts, I have found my true love in editing and producing documentary work. I am particularly interested in research and the development of questions to really personally connect with subjects when I interview them.
Since June 2017 I have had the pleasure of working with VEX Robotics and HEXBUG Micro Robotic Creatures as their video editor (and sometimes photographer and videographer). Every day is different and exciting, there’s always a fun original project that comes up and requires a quick turn around. From internationally aired commercials, to short documentaries, to referee training videos, we get to do it all.
I love film because it gives me the chance to connect with people and take a step into their world. In a 20 minute interview, I can make a friend for life. There are so many stories out there that the world needs to see, and I want to be a part of making that happen.
