She is currently a Junior Editor at the post-production company House of Trim in NYC, where she has worked on commercial, branded content and documentary projects for well-known companies such as TOYOTA, ESPN, The New Yorker, Herman Miller and D.S. & Durga. Some of her branded content work was featured in GQ Magazine, Condé Nast Traveller and Esquire.
She has worked as an editor on the short documentary “The Jerome Project”, which premiered at BAM in NYC, and in 2018 she edited and produced the documentary Love From Afar, which has been selected for multiple film festivals in the US. (@transoceanicgirl)
