Another collaboration with Adam Bhala Lough- this time on his third installment of The Motivation skateboard doc series. This feature takes a look at Tampa Am - the world's largest and most storied amateur skate contest, which is considered a right of passage on the road to becoming Pro. Here we profiled four young amateurs from all over the world, in their conquest for the coveted Tampa Am title. The film dropped on 9/15/17 and is currently streaming on iTunes.

My latest feature doc, The New Radical- directed by Adam Bhala Lough was an Official Jury Selection at Sundance 2017 and is currently making the festival circuit. Co-edited with Jay Rabinowitz A.C.E. (Requiem for a Dream) with score by acclaimed composer Clint Mansell (Black Swan, Ghost in a Shell.)
From the Sundance Film Program:
In this observational diptych, Adam Lough glimpses a rarified world, filled with embittered young people born into a dreamless, corporatized, and deeply politicized generation, where the only real resistance is at their fingertips – the internet. The new radicals revel in questioning every paradigm, from gun control to encryption, even if it means incarceration. Yet the question remains: Are they freedom fighters or criminals? This captivating encounter examines how a distinct group came about and what their existence says about the economic, cultural, and technological landscape of our post-election world.

Here are two pieces I cut for Broadly, Vice's new-ish women's interest channel launched in 2015.
Over the past few years I've created original content for the up and coming Chattanooga Film Festival. Mostly the cinema indents that play during the festival. Until this year, when I was invited back to create the permanent in house content for CINE-RAMA, the independent cinema just opened by it's founders- which also plays host to the festival.
The Cinefamily has become a revered Los Angeles Institution. Whenever I can, I find the time to cut together trailers for their screenings. I love Cinefamily.
Another AP related item- this time a collaboration with one of my favorite LA artists Jason Yates (who directed this). This video was commissioned for MOCA but somehow never made it into prime time...
