I’m a freelance film editor with experience in half-hour comedies and indie feature films. I was born in rural Western Massachusetts and received a degree in Visual & Environmental Studies from Harvard, which is just their fancy way of saying “film production.” I have developed a particular expertise in emerging digital workflows and am an evangelist for the ways in which technology can make filmmaking both less expensive and higher quality. I have worked closely with indie film pioneer Hal Hartley for over a decade. My lifelong interest in comedy and timing led me to editing, and I have edited projects with great comedians like Jerry Seinfeld, Marc Maron, Jim Gaffigan, Denis Leary, Cheech & Chong, and Bobcat Goldthwait. I occasionally write and direct my own short films and I have taught editing at Harvard, The New School, and the Editors Guild. I live in Brooklyn with my wife Maggie Lehrman.
