Joe hails from a small village in upstate New York. After receiving his BA in Psychology and a brief existential crisis, he decided he would rather have a career in making stuff and moved to Brooklyn.
While finishing up an MA in Media Studies and editing anything he could get his hands on, he got his start in the industry as an assistant editor for an award-winning non-fiction film & commercial studio in downtown Manhattan. Quickly becoming the post-production supervisor, Joe oversaw all commercial edits as well as the director’s most recent non-fiction feature film.
In 2014, he jumped at the opportunity to pursue his passion for editing full time and joined the amazing team at IKA Collective.
