I am a narrative Film Editor, Cinematographer and Digital VFX Artist from Panama City, Florida who landed in Los Angeles in 2010. Over the last decade, I have edited a wide variety of projects including several narrative and documentary features, short films, music videos, commercials, web series and unscripted television. I'm a post production workflow specialist as well as a Canon Cinema Series/RED Camera Owner/Operator. I love science-fiction, horror, fantasy and dark comedy. I collect vinyl records, dime store sci-fi novels and vintage metal robots. My Australian Cattle Dog, Dash Render, is never far from my side. We also have a tabby named Tango Foxtrot that keeps us on our toes!
