I was born in Miami where my passion for film and the fine arts was definitely influenced by my mothers work as prominent film actress and recording artist. I was surrounded by stories and music throughout my childhood and my love for them grew as it pushed me to receive an MFA in Media Arts/Filmmaking from the University of Montana. During the graduate three year program, I was chosen to work for Viacom in NYC for a semester as an editor/motion designer between MTV, VH-1 and Nickelodeon.
After completing graduate school I found work on a television pilot for Nickelodeon and moved to Los Angeles. My love of this craft and passion to push myself has allowed me to enjoy LA for 15 years. Throughout that time I’ve completed edits on 5 feature films, countless shorts, sizzles, commercials, trailers and had the pleasure of working with some of the best directors, agencies and post houses in the business. I love what I do! Being able to weave images together and tell a story is why I sit in a dark room all day.
I’m passionate about my craft and put my everything into every project I collaborate on. When I’m not working for studios, agencies and directors in film, broadcast, and online, I edit/produce content from my own studio, GansMEDIA. I am open to all paid projects and positions in my area, so please don’t hesitate to reach out with questions or comments.
