I started my career in Roger Corman’s film studio in Ireland, where we produced 5 films a year. I worked up from set PA through the editing ranks to editor in under 3 years, becoming the first Irish editor to cut a film in the studio.
Seeking fresh challenges, I moved from Galway, Ireland to Los Angeles in 2014. As an avid surfer, this 5,000 mile transplant was in no small way related to the temperature of the water. Proving we never truly leave home no matter how far we go, I am currently editing a feature documentary called “Home and Away”, which explores how sports can connect us to our hometowns, following the surprising return of basketball superstar Lebron James to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Over the years, I developed trusting relationships with many directors and producers, with whom I have collaborated on many projects. Editing is all about relationships. The relationship between the editor and the director, the energy between the actor and the camera, between the editor and the shot footage.
From the first look to the last, I’m your film’s final feature.
