sound editor

I've always loved the magic of movies. Early in my career, I discovered how sound can influence stories and found my calling as a sound editor. I believe sound plays such an essential role in developing mood and emotion. When I'm editing a movie, I feel like I'm in the movie, sensing more than is on the screen. I interpret the mood of a scene, searching for sounds to accentuate, to add nuance, or to create excitement.

In my 38 years in the business, so many people have helped me grow artistically. A turning point for me was joining Soundelux in 1994, where I was encouraged to expand the boundaries of Sound Design. I'm thankful for those experiences, and for the opportunity to have worked with directors like Quentin Tarantino, Oliver Stone, and Ridley Scott, who appreciate and welcome sound creation.

I'm very happy today to be part of a creative, forward thinking team, where I am inspired every day.
