I love filmmaking. I have known I wanted to make films since I was a little kid. Features, shorts, documentaries, experimental, I like it all. I attended film school in my home state of New Hampshire, and moved the Los Angeles immediately after. Since then I have worked on everything from features to TV to music videos. I like the entire film making process, but I have focused on editing as a career. In my free time I work on my own projects, which makes me take on the role of director, producer, editor, and DP.

I have been lucky to work with many different people in L.A. and in turn I have learned a lot about the different facets of the film industry. Since I have worked on so many different kinds of projects I am confident when taking on new and different work. I go into projects knowing I will be able to bring my own unique view of things and shape the piece into something fresh.

Please view the reels I have linked below, and view my resume to see
the extent of the projects I've worked on that aren't included in my
reels. If you feel I would be a candidate for the position please call
or email me with more information. Thank you, I look forward to hearing from you.
