I’m a freelance video editor currently located in Los Angeles. Most recently, I’ve been editing short form and long form reality and documentary pieces which also require story producing. I’m a super fast and highly empathetic editor – born and raised in Indiana and bringing that Midwestern Work Ethic to the West Coast!

I’m open to freelance or permanent work as an editor – please connect with me to discuss your project!

Technical Experience Highlights

  • Expert in Adobe Creative Suite: Premiere, After Effects, Photoshop, etc.

  • I’m well-versed with workflow requirements and best practices, sound design and color for offline, turnovers, MAMs/DAMs, different storage types, QC, broadcast delivery specs, tape output, stock footage/music clearance, archival best practices, and both PC and Mac environments.

Katie Trivia

  • I have a twin sister!
  • I’m a huge fan of science fiction and fantasy. When I was little, I remember attending Sci-Fi and Star Trek conventions with my mom. I actually remember the first time I saw an anime being screened there, which sparked my love for animation today.
  • Mentoring the next generation of editors and young people in general is very important to me.
  • My favorite films include Lord of the Rings trilogy, Harry Potter, and Studio Ghibli films like Howl’s Moving Castle or My Neighbor Totoro.
