User Bio

I began in post production in 1993 with Superior Assembly in Hollywood CA. A high-end offline edit facility specializing in commercials and music videos. We cut everything from Got Milk to Madonna. My mentors were editor/owners Tom Muldoon, John Murray and Jim Haygood who all freelanced at Propaganda films before joining forces. Propaganda hosted many directors who are still in feature films today. Including: Michael Bay (Pearl Harbor, Transformers), David Fincher (Fight club, Benjamin Button), Dominic Sena (Kalifornia, Gone in 60 Seconds), Spike Jonze (Adaptation, Where the Wild Things Are). In 1998 I branched off with Tom and John to form Nomad Editing Company in Santa Monica to build my own portfolio of commercial editing work, including: Miller, Apple and Pepsi. Also some features including: Armegeddon, Pearl Harbor and Swordfish. In 2000 I was one of the 1st editors in the industry to edit on set using camera tap footage for action sequences on The Italian Job. With a passion for action sports, in 2001 I was sole editor on the true 70 MM IMAX film, Ultimate X, one of the top grossing films of that summer. It played in IMAX screens globally. Including the largest in NYC at 110 feet. In 2003 I left Nomad for Portland Oregon. I started Abound Media broadening my scope in the field to include the development of content for web and beyond. In Portland, I developed a close working relationship with Wieden and Kennedy (2008 Agency of the year). In 2004, along with W+K Entertainment I completed Nike Ginga, a documentary shot in Brazil following seven soccer players discovering the secret ingredient that made them the best at their sport. Produced by Fernando Merellies (City of God, Blindness) the movie aired internationally. In 2007 and 2008 I edited national broadcast commercials for W+K including: Nike, EA sports and Old Spice (2008 Cannes Gold Award). Holding a passion for long form, I completed Say My Name, a women in Hip Hop documentary and Nike SB’s Nothing But The Truth, a skate movie debuting seven of the best skateboarders on earth, directed by Lionel Goldstein. 2009 was my own directorial debut for a branded content surfing film shot on the North Shore of Oahu.
