Editor

In his sixteen years as a professional editor Don has worked on a wide variety of projects including narrative films, documentaries, reality shows, commercials, music videos, and branded entertainment.

He has most recently cut several narrative films; Anna Margaret Hollyman’s comedy Maude (Sundance), Travis Mathews’ dark thriller Discreet (Berlinale), James Bryan’s lost-for-25-years horror/comedy Jungle Trap (Fantastic Fest), Yen Tan’s drama Pit Stop (Sundance; Nominee, John Cassavetes Independent Spirit Award), and John Bryant’s award-winning short film The Samaritans (SXSW).

In addition to his work on critically-acclaimed and award-winning films, he has also cut the first season of CNN’s critically-acclaimed docu-series High Profits as well as two seasons of the post-apocalyptic science fiction drama Day 5 for Rooster Teeth, and several seasons of A&E’s highly-rated reality show Shipping Wars as well as programs for TLC and The Discovery Channel.
