His journey began when he met the film’s director Ava DuVernay at an early stage, when they both were starting out in filmmaking.

ASSISTANT EDITOR:
"With the way that technology keeps developing, the post-production workflow changes constantly and an assistant editor needs to stay on top of all the changes.
