As the daughter of a commercial director and cinematographer, I grew up surrounded by show-making. I started life as a performer, including eleven years as a comedy improviser with ComedySportz Los Angeles, seven seasons under Salem the cat on Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and dozens of puppets in
Team America, World Police.
After emigrating to Canada in 2008,
my work increasing shifted behind the camera as I expanded my technical capacities to apply my unusual career trajectory and storytelling experience to editing.
I'm very lucky to have edited so many TV movies with so many terrific talents!
Behind my cheerful exterior
is a sincere desire to be helpful.
I am inspired by creative problem-solving and juiced-up in collaborative moments!
I adore editing anything well-directed.
The pleasure of a great bin of footage is not to be underestimated. I love editing!
It’s cinematography, performances, sound, music, montage. It’s co-creating the “last draft of the script.” Everything!
