I'm and editor with four years experience. Most recently worked for three and a half years as a fine cut editor for truTV's (formerly Court TV's) "Forensic Files". Edited and delivered 33 episodes during my tenure. Worked one on one with producers as well as being left alone to tell a story through media. My experience has given me excellent organization and communication skills. Able to see things from multiple perspectives which enabled me to be a great creative problem solver. Proficient in Final Cut Pro and multiple versions of Avid software as well as Genarts' Sapphire and Boris Continuum plugins, and Adobe After Effects.
