I am interested in a broad spectrum of filmmaking, from genre films to social issue documentaries. It is precisely this diversity which makes editing such engaging work.
Each project offers me the opportunity to immerse myself into new topics, characters, storytelling approaches, and learn new things. It is challenging and very fulfilling to be able to use this growing knowledge in my everyday life.
I enjoy feeling into a films’ characters, to understand their motivations, desires, hopes and fears. I want the audience to feel them, to fall in love with them – or hate them. Just as I do. Or just as needed.
We can create emotions and spark thoughts with each choice of image or sound. The viewer takes a feeling or question home. A discussion begins and the film’s objective has left the screening room. Change happens.
As an editor, I cherish the opportunity to work on important films which have the capacity to empower people and foster change.

Films can change your opinion.
Films can be manipulative and dangerous.
Films can be manipulative and beneficial.
Films can teach lessons, open minds and create awareness.
Films can be influential.
Films are a powerful tool to reach people.
To work with, and constantly learn on how to use this tool is what interests me.
