About Eli

I am television editor and have worked in Los Angeles for the past ten years cutting competition shows, reality shows, lifestyle shows, and documentaries. I have cut shows for broadcast networks and cable networks. I have worked on The X Factor for FOX, The Taste for ABC, Breaking Pointe for The CW, In Their Own Words for PBS, Celebrity Rehab for VH1, Married to Medicine Atlanta for Bravo, and many other shows.

In 2002, I received an MFA in Film from Boston University. I wrote and directed my MFA thesis film, Beautiful Night, a 16mm film that was in competition at the inaugural Tribeca Film Festival in 2002.

In 2001 I was hired by Haft Entertainment (known for Dead Poet’s Society, Emma, and Tigerland) to write a script-for-hire, Feast of the Flowers. Thus starting my screenwriting career. I was a screenwriter for over ten years having written five screenplays on spec before I transitioned to editing.

I have been editing television shows since 2006.
