While I was in film school at Toronto Metropolitan University, I would like to say I chose to become an editor because the art form and visual representation of story on screen really spoke to me. But actually, I just didn’t want to be standing around on set for 14 hours a day. That process of elimination was probably the best decision I’ve ever made. Editing is the perfect mixture of creativity, collaboration, story telling, music, and technical nerdyness. Sometimes I can’t believe I get paid to do what I do. 

After I graduated film school, I was missing that ocean fresh air and decided to move home to Vancouver. That move launched my career into editing for television. At the time, reality and lifestyle TV was all the rage so for six years I edited for some of Canada’s top factual production companies including Paperny and Force Four Entertainment. For three season I edited the docudrama series Yukon Gold which aired on History TV and The National Geographic Channel in Canada, the U.S. and the U.K.

I knew my heart wasn’t going to be in the reality TV world for long, so I applied to the Editor's Lab at the prestigious Canadian Film Centre. I hoofed it back to Torrona (that’s Canadian for “Toronto”) and for the next six months worked with directors, writers and producers from across the country. Through those collaborations, I was able to push my boundaries in the craft of editing and created life long friendships and connections.

Since completing the fellowship at the Canadian Film Centre, my career has focused on comedies and thrillers. This seems to be the best way to channel my general goofiness and love of all things weird. After editing on the final season of Kim's Convenience I joined forces with Blue Ice Pictures (based in Toronto and South Africa) on their sci-fi teen series Astrid and Lilly Save the World. Next up was the SYFY, CTV series SurrealEstate and a four part documentary series on black music in Canada. With more series on the horizon, I can't wait to see what 2024 has to bring.

Stories are an integral part of the human experience. As an editor I'm passionate about working in film and television because I believe stories need to be told, seen and heard to help create more compassion on this crazy planet we live on. Even if it's through a couple laughs and a jump scare.
