About Me

Hi! I'm Emily, an enthusiastic collaborator with a passion for visual storytelling. With over twelve years of professional editing experience, I've cut for a variety of high-profile media companies and independent filmmakers in both the documentary and scripted space.

My career started at Vice Media where I edited countless digital videos with subjects spanning culture, news, technology, music, travel, and film. Upon launching their television channel, I edited a handful of Viceland’s acclaimed series, such as "Dark Side of the Ring," "Balls Deep," and "Outsider." Some notable feature films include Snoop Dogg's music documentary, "Reincarnated," and "Fishing Without Nets" - winner of the U.S. Dramatic Directing Award at Sundance.

With an unyielding affection for independent film, I love working with filmmakers on their passion projects. Some highlights include "Danny's Girl," which premiered at Sundance, played SXSW, and is a Vimeo Staff Pick. Also, "I Adore Dolores," a pilot that premiered at Seriesfest, won “Most Outrageous” at Orlando Film Festival, was chosen as one of NoBudge's top films of 2020, and is an alumna of the 2018 IFP Screen Forward labs. And most recently, the feature documentary "On Guard : The Story of American Youth," which premiered at The Golden State Film Festival, 2023.

As an ongoing freelance editor, I've collaborated with National Geographic, A&E, Apple, YouTube Originals, Bustle, Condé Nast, Cosmopolitan, Bleacher Report, and The Ford Foundation.

I'm currently based in Los Angeles and am always looking for like-minded collaborators.
