With over 20 years of editing experience, we know the vital
ingredients that you need to make a project successful:
First, you need the story. Collaborating with a producer or working solo, we can craft the narrative that you’re after, or even dig through the footage to find the story that you want to tell.
Second, you need the right music. We are experts at setting the tone for your project and layering in the right tracks, or leaving it dry, to create the perfect mood for every scene.
Third, you need pacing. How your story is told is as important as the story itself. Pacing is like feeding a baby; feed it too slow and the baby will cry for more… But if you feed it too fast the baby will get overwhelmed and spit the food out.

Proper pacing helps an audience digest the information. The definition of a professional editor, Mike has experience with competition shows, cooking shows, dating shows, game shows, and talk shows, along with both narrative and commercial work.


Currently, Mike is living just outside Chicago and editing remotely, so that he can eat real pizza, his kids can walk to school, and they all get to enjoy other seasons besides “hot.”

But given that he’s only an hour behind New York and just two hours ahead of Los Angeles, Mike is happy to work his edit shift starting at 9 am in your timezone if requested.

Great editor, great communication.
Working remotely was easy and cost effective, and we got an A-List LA editor without the A-List rate.


Someone who gets it.
Sense of story telling is on point, and someone who is a machine in the bay.
