Film & TV Editor
I was seven years old when I watched “Back to the Future” and my world changed. I was captivated by the magic of filmmaking, the works of Spielberg and Zemeckis, and dreamed of making movies in Hollywood someday.
Fast forward to age twenty, I became one of the first Avid editors in Turkey, and moved to Los Angeles soon after. I remember sitting in the edit bay one morning, proudly screening my Editor’s Cut with the producers, and thinking “I can’t believe I get to do this, and get paid for it!” – My version of the American dream!
My excitement and enthusiasm for the craft have only grown bigger over time. I love immersing myself in the footage and mining for those special moments that will tell the best story. I live for that magical moment when picture and sound come together and incite a feeling deep inside of you.
In fact, I’m addicted to that feeling, and I’ve been lucky enough to make a successful career out of it, cutting a wide variety of long form content from feature films, to documentaries to high profile network television, and winning some awards along the way.
As I continue my journey, I want to focus more on character-driven narrative with emotional complexity and relationship dynamics. I want to help filmmakers tell their story, dig deep into the psychology of their characters, create an exciting audio-visual experience, and do all the “re-writing” necessary to make their vision come alive. I look forward to collaborating with storytellers who enjoy exploring different ideas and aim for perfection.
