Above all, I strive to tell
a lucid and affecting story.
In so doing, I bring to bear my zeal
for the shaping of time, images and sound
on the creative process of editing.

Assistant to three producer/editor teams on a six episode series about African American history for PBS. Responsible for ingesting footage, archival material organization, multi-camera syncing, exports, and preparing sequences for sound mix and online edit.
Also tasked with motion-graphics work, string-outs, and cutting in narration and music cues.
My journey into the realm of film and video editing began with formative explorations of drawing, painting, printmaking and music.
I was further propelled by exposure to conceptual art films, documentary and critical theory while a student
at the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts), where I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2007.
Upon graduating from CalArts, I received the $25,000 Gelman Travel Fellowship, which allowed me to spend the better part of one year in the culturally rich and diverse country of Panama, collaborating on documentary video projects with a talented group of local artists and musicians.
In 2009, on a hope and a dream, I moved to Brooklyn, New York with my wife, Emily Singer Chapman, a documentary producer,
to pursue careers in film. We have lived here along with our cat, Nicky, ever since.
