Profiles, Stories & Branded Content
Hi! Thanks for checking out my site.
I started working as a video editor in 2004, after a long career as a contemporary dancer and choreographer. I believe editing, like dancing, isn't just about being a good technician - it's about rhythm, musicality and most importantly it's about communicating ideas and feelings with your audience.
My specialty is working as both story and video editor - I collaborate with busy producer/directors who hand me hours of footage and trust me to craft a compelling story. Some of my editing highlights are the Emmy Award-winning documentary “Ghana: Digital Dumping Ground” for PBS Frontline/World and the Emmy-nominated “In a Small Town” for PBS Exposé. Other credits include documentaries for Al Jazeera, The New York Times, Omni and Dan Rather Reports as well as dozens of corporate and promotional videos for TELUS, Google and WestJet.
Recently I also began working as a video producer, producing videos for the award winning British Columbia Girls Choir and others.
I am passionate about collaboration, the creative process and telling great stories. I'd love to talk to you about your video project!
Kim brings so much to a project beyond her technical abilities — a keen sense of narrative and character, composition, story arc, dynamics. She has an uncanny instinct for flow that elevates everything she touches. The Balanchine of the edit room!

Kim is a class-act to work with. She works independently, but also very collaboratively. One of my favourite people in — and out of — an edit suite!
