Video Editor and Filmmaker
I am an experienced assistant editor with technical expertise in Premiere Pro and AVID MC. I am currently working on receiving my AVID cert.
My skills include, but are not limited to, ingesting media, transcoding, syncing, bin organization, making selects - stringouts, subsequences, and subclips; captioning, transcribing, lumetri scopes, color correction, motion graphics, sourcing SFX and music, and working with After Effects Templates.
Although my day job is Assistant Editing, I like to edit others' passion projects on the side. I have a mastery and love of storytelling in post-production.
I have the technical skills to work with other post professionals or I can do the general sound mix and color myself in addition to the visual edit, whatever the budget demands.

David spent years engaging in all aspects of film production as an editor, PA, 2nd AC, and producer. He studied film production and editing at BRIC Arts Media.
In 2019, he developed The Hosts, a 10 episode digital comedy series with writer/actor Ben Odom. In addition to producing and editing his own projects, David worked as a freelance producer and production manager on the pilot for Dr. Dee Dee's ABC's of Grief, titled Murmur. When the covid-19 pandemic hit, David worked full-time as a direct service professional for a teen with disability.
He just finished a 6-week editing course at the Manhattan Edit Workshop and is studying for his AVID certification. When not editing, David enjoys a game of kickball in McCarren Park!
