How long have you been an editor for?

Professionally for 13 years.

What genres have you worked on?

I’ve worked on basically everything under the sun! But have specialized in working on documentaries.

What has been an interesting/favourite project so far?

I feel super fortunate to earn a living making films, so I’m grateful for them all. But my last documentary that I directed, “Sickboy,” was maybe my favorite because it was the result of 12 years of learning every day, then putting all those lessons in to practice to create a great film that our whole team was proud of and has affected a lot of people in a positive way. 

What are you currently working on?

At this very moment, I’m editing a documentary series called “Ocean School” for the National Film Board. Why did you decide to become an editor? I decided to become an editor because I wanted to cut my first documentary and was very curious about the process. But after the first few years of cutting, I realized I maybe had a knack for it. I always felt super comfortable cutting, even when I sucked at it, haha! I just love the power you have to control the emotion of a story. I have the utmost respect for every discipline in filmmaking, but I feel like the edit is where the film is really made, especially in documentary.

I just really feel at home in the edit suite.
