Desiree graduated from San Diego State University in May 2010 with a degree in Television, Film, and New Media. She grew up in a single parent household, where times were tough, but that may be what had brought her to love movies so much.
Desiree's love for television and film started when she began to watch it as a child. The TV would allow her to feel like she was in a new world, where anything was possible. She was going on an exciting adventure searching tombs like Indiana or researching real dinosaurs in Jurassic Park. Or maybe she was a Superhero that could swoop in and save the day. Movies and television were the catalysts to make these dreams come true. With her desire to create that same feeling for others, she sought out ways to allow viewers to throw their worries out the door and enjoy a new and exciting life just as she had been doing for many years.
After searching around, Desiree found a wonderful Television and Film program at San Diego State University. After working on just a few projects within the program, she noticed her passion and urge to edit. She discovered yet another way to create her dream hero scenarios. She could take the ideas and put the pieces together to create a winning situation for not only the characters, but for herself.
She has been slowly making her dreams come true with every project she works on. She has been working diligently on many student films, working as a production assistant, editing assistant, editor and striving for that day to watch her stories come to life on screen.
She has worked on many different projects such as, fictional drama, fictional dance drama, fantasy, live recordings (fashion show & earth day concert), TV comedy, Marketing videos, and has even done some behind the scenes specials. She also enjoys just editing memorable moments for those who want their family videos to last forever. Recently, she has decided to try the world of News Broadcasting to bring current events to viewers television sets every morning. News has been a whole new and fast paced experience for her, but she has loved every minute of it.
Desiree wants to follow great examples such as Thelma Schoonmaker, whom proved the industry wasn't just a boys club. Like her, she is determined to make a voice in the industry. She hopes to be as knowledgable as Walter Murch, and someday share her growing wisdom with others. Desiree also dreams to be as privileged as Chris Lebenzon, so she can show the world her imagination and entice them to take a journey through one of her creations. She plans to continue her passion for editing looking for ways to make her dreams come true. She hopes that you will allow her to turn your next project into a great adventure, and see just how much she loves to edit.
