About Me
Welcome to my online portfolio.

When I started editing my first student film at USC, I thought I wanted to go into special effects. When I finished editing that first film, I knew I wanted to be an editor. I was lucky to work throughout college at Stan Winston Studio, and was even luckier that they had an Avid in need of a visual effects editor. That was my start, and after departing SWS I worked my way up as an Assistant Editor and now Editor.

I speak fluent Spanish, can work in the EU, and am a member of the Motion Picture Editors Guild.

More importantly, I just love to edit.

I also maintain a workflow-oriented blog I call my Editing Brain Dump. I'm an avid traveler, both for work and fun, and in 2008 I bought an around-the-world plane ticket so I could travel my way home to LA from a job in London by heading east. Lastly, I'm a classical pianist with more than 20 years of practice, and I think that has had a great impact on the pace, rhythm, and timing I implement every day as an editor.

Since you got this far, allow me to present The Recital, my intermediate ("310") USC student film from 2002. Enjoy!
