Still here?
Wow, bottom of the page, huh? Congratulations, you've made it to the only space where I can truly be myself and write in the first person. Since you're aching to know more about me (proof: here you are, at the bottom of this page) I'll tell you. 
I started editing when I was around 16, in a time where you had to buy specialty hardware and install it into your monstrous PC tower computer if you wanted to ingest crappy, interlaced SD footage of your friends skateboarding from the cheap-o (but still expensive) miniDV camcorder you bought at Best Buy. Suffice to say, I've had a lot of practice since then. After the camcorder years I made it to NYU where I got to edit with a Steenbeck, an even more archaic, but oddly way more fun, piece of technology. After that I climbed the ranks in NYC's post production industry, working my way up to editor. I've cut spots for national and global brands like Home Depot, Pantene, Garnier, Facebook, and AdCouncil, to name exactly five (see more on the homepage!) Most recently, I've been updating the About Me page on my website.
When I'm not editing commercials/short films/music videos, or updating my About Me page, I enjoy photography, traveling, comedy (both the live and pre-recorded kind) and nothing beyond that because it won't fit tidily into a 3-item list.
