Video Editing

Finding the balance between technical abilities and pure creative storytelling is what defines an editor who is dedicated to their craft. Video editing serves as the foundation of my experience in post-production, as I began as a video editor around 2015 prior to my experience with color grading. I’ve edited multi-season web series, corporate sizzle reels, commercials, mixed media projects, and short films. 

I remember being 17 when my dad taught me the basics of cameras, video capture, and video editing when he gave me his Sony Handycam DCR-HC85. I later went to college with the aspirations of getting into the film industry in one way or another. Through college, I learned more about how cameras work, how to run a set, the different NLEs, and I was introduced to various film productions that were happening around campus. After being involved in a few 48 Hour Film Projects and independent productions, I got to know professionals in the industry. 

I worked with Corvus Eye Media and KIND TV from around 2017 to 2020, mainly as a Video Editor, but also as a Camera Operator and Assistant Director when needed. I travelled to Hawaii to help film KIND TV's episode "A Gift of Love for Preston Scott", which I edited, and I travelled to Trinidad & Tobago with Corvus Eye Media as a Camera Operator and DIT for a documentary that is yet to be released, served as Assistant Camera for various short films, as well as serving as DIT on set for Amazon and Microsoft through Corvus Eye Media. 


In late 2018 I began freelancing for post-production house Clatter&Din as their lead video editor and colorist. I got to experience working closely with a team of seasoned audio engineers, as I was tasked with performing audio/video layback for stereo, 5.1, and 7.1 sessions. I was also in charge of rendering deliverables to spec for broadcast and streaming platforms and became familiar with broadcast requirements. In 2020, I was hired full-time at Clatter&Din. In 2020, I managed a team of 5 editors on a 32-deliverable Amazon project over the course of two weeks, managing the post pipeline, and making sure we met our deadline. (we did). 

In early 2021, Clatter&Din was bought by industry-leading post-production powerhouse Formosa Group (a Streamland Media company) whereby me and my team became Formosa Interactive Seattle. Ever since then, I've been continuing to edit and grade short films, documentaries, and commercials, while being a part of a worldwide network of incredible post-production professionals.
