ABOUT

A film is a performance; my goal as an editor is to move and engage the audience from start to finish.

I am a film editor working mainly in narrative fiction and documentary. I have cut for the big screen as well as broadcast. My last feature THE HUNGRY (Dir:Bornila Chatterjee) played at Toronto and London film festivals in 2017. In the same year I graduated from National Film and Television School with an MA in editing. My graduation documentary, CHOMO (Dir:Maayan Arad), was nominated for an IDA and Grierson award and I also received the AVID Award for Excellence in Editing for THE LIGHT REFRACTS INTO THE SHADOWS (Dir:Kevin Yeh). Prior to that I was a professional assistant editor working across commercials, broadcast and features.
