I was born and raised in San Pedro, California.  Every Friday night my Dad would let me pick out a movie to rent at the Wherehouse.  I fell in love with VHS tapes and anything involving Harold Ramis.

After college, I worked first as an assistant editor on feature films and then as an editor in unscripted programming. I switched to scripted comedy about ten years ago.  I've learned important things from all the genres I've worked in over the years.  I never studied dance formally, but I assume it's like practicing various styles of dance, where knowing some ballet can inform your work in modern or jazz.  I believe that cutting different genres keeps my approach flexible and responsive to the project at hand.
