Although Georgia hails from Bland, Virginia, her life has been anything but. At 17, she escaped the Appalachian holler in which she was born; at 21, she found herself serving dinner to David Lee Roth on the Lower East Side.
After graduating from The College of William and Mary with a degree in English Literature, Georgia kicked off her editing career as a receptionist at Final Cut. She quickly moved up the ladder to a cutting assistant position before making the move to Cut + Run, where she was promoted to editor.
A storyteller at heart, Georgia discovered her love for documentary editing with Matt Lenski's Meaning of Robots, which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival, won Best Short Documentary at the Nashville Film Festival, and screened at SXSW and MoMA's New Directors/New Films. Her first feature documentary, Underplayed, edited and co-written with director Stacey Lee, premiered at Toronto International Film Festival in September 2020. She is currently editing the Disney documentary Madu with directors Matt Ogens and Kachi Benson, out in 2023.
Georgia is located in Los Angeles, but can work for you anywhere. She enjoys black coffee, the Sunday paper, and Murder, She Wrote.
