Hey, thank you for considering my application!

Please find my most recent work and digital resume below and feel free to reach out if you have any further questions.


In short: I'm a video editor / VFX editor based in Vancouver, Canada. I love everything that has to do with film and video, focussing on post-production.
I work with precision, attention to detail and good organizational skill, three essential traits I was able to hone and sharpen in my recent experience as a VFX Editor on movies like Aquaman and Sonic The Hedgehog.

As a lot of my daily work is under NDA, I can't show it here. The examples below are:

- "ZERO SUM" a title sequence I made for a small editing competition.

- A Show Reel I edited for a VFX Compositing Artist

- My older variety reel featuring editing, coloring and title design work.
