About Me

Hey there, I’m Brandon. I am a professional video editor who has experience working on television shows, music videos, short films, commercials, web series, and lots of other cool stuff.  I know my way around Avid, Premiere, and Final Cut Pro – so whatever project you may have, chances are I’d be able to tackle it.  I have a B.F.A. in Film Studies from the University of Florida (2009), and an M.F.A. in Film & Television Production from Savannah College of Art & Design (2012).  I like to think my years of watching a bunch of movies followed by my years of making a bunch of movies, prepared me well for the industry.  So far, so good, anyways.

Let’s work together! Feel free to check around if you want to get to know me and my work a little more, and if you have any questions or projects that need editing, please feel free to contact me!
