I am the Supervising Editor, Creative Director, and Co-Founder of WHEELHOUSE CREATIVE. We create many movie trailers, featurettes, tribute montages, and fundraising sizzles for our many clients. E me at Wheelhouse headquarters: firstname.lastname@example.org
In my editing career, I've edited 100+ theatrical trailers, including those for many essential indie, foreign, and documentary films of our times. (Fun fact: I've edited the trailers to six films that have won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film. Six!) I’ve edited multiple feature documentaries. I’ve edit-doctored narrative features. I've edited Oscar montages, Lifetime Achievements, and In Memoriams. I’ve been nom’d twice for Emmys, and won multiple Key Arts and Golden Trailer Awards. I also edited my friend’s Kickstarter video for his slurpee machine but it didn’t get funded.
LECTURER / EDUCATOR / MODERATOR
I speak regularly about editing, cinematic storytelling, documentary filmmaking, and of course trailers. I have been a guest lecturer or master class instructor at Columbia University Journalism School, NYU News&Doc, Montclair State, SUNY Purchase, Rollins College, City College of New York, LIU Brooklyn, SVA, The College of New Jersey, and DCTV. I am a two-time Special Visiting Guest Lecturer for ChileDoc (CCDoc) in Santiago, Chile. I also have frequently been invited to be a moderator or juror at major film festivals and industry events.

In 2014, I made the documentary MAGICAL UNIVERSE. The film is about a reclusive and eccentric 88-year old outsider artist who became my close friend for over a decade. The film won several film festival awards and subsequently was released theatrically by IFC Films in Winter 2014/2015.
The documentary was a Los Angeles Times and Village Voice Critic's Pick and was selected by the New York Times as recommended watching when it debuted on Netflix. You can now find it on iTunes, Amazon Instant, IFC Unlimited, and special edition DVD. In 2016, Magical Universe was featured at the Louvre as part of the Barbie exhibit at the Musee Des Arts Decoratifs.
