Film Experience

As an editor, I have had the pleasure of working with industry icons such as Martin Scorsese and Thelma Schoonmaker on A Personal Journey with Martin Scorsese through American Movies, on studio pictures such as Waterworld and Flipper, and on independent films such as 39 Pounds of Love, Most, and New York Street Games


I have worked also in production, on notable films such as Desperately Seeking Susan and The Karate Kid.

Acting

Our results in life and our reputations, after all is said and done, depend on the actions we take.


I have studied acting and directing at Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute, Playhouse West, Second City, Upfront Comedy, and with Judith Weston and George Gallagher.


This work draws uniquely on techniques from both acting and editing, in coordination with our modern knowledge of Neuroscience, to help people act their way through past traumas and into a new life movie in which they are the star.
