Hi! My name is Ivonne.
And I am a Film / TV Editor & Assistant based out of NYC!

It all started with Depeche mode.

I was a twelve-year-old in Texas, a recent arrival from Puerto Rico but a handful of years earlier. As an American pre-teen, I was glued to the television watching MTV and caught the broadcast of Depeche Mode's Enjoy the Silence. The experience made me decide that this is what I needed to do with my life: create films.

My past

A few years later, I enrolled at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. Yet, I saw the film scene in Austin and transferred to the University of Texas to continue my undergraduate studies in Film Production. I wanted to be the next Indie, low-budget filmmaker like Robert Rodriguez...but who didn't at the time!

I honed my skills in writing and directing and made a short musical set in a hand-made arcade I built with my friends. It was ambitious and wild. I thrived working as a part of an underdog team facing challenges to get the project finished.

After graduation, I packed two suitcases and moved to New York to pursue the artsy scene. I obtained a Master of Design and Technology at Parsons, which was different from my film background. It refined my problem-solving skill set. It pushed me to think about Design, Strategy, and Concept. At Parsons, I learned to iterate different ways to solve problems. I also learned how to apply feedback and notes to strengthen narrative. Cause in art school, everything has a story.

My present

I am an Editor and Assistant Editor in Scripted Television and Film in New York City on shows like The Sinner, Billions, and Warrior. As an Assistant, I like to bring a calm presence to the Edit Room. I practice various communication, management, and initiative levels to make things run smoothly. As an Editor, I collaborate with Directors and Producers to problem-solve stories and other issues that arise while working with the footage, from dailies to delivery.
