Erica O’Brien


Growing up across the country and abroad, Lighthouse Editor Erica O’Brien considers herself a product of perpetual motion. A born and bred Tarheel, she trained at documentary production and commercial post houses in New York. Her love of post-production transcends the work day – she teaches documentary editing with a community arts program and creates one-minute shorts with her friends in local film collective Dogma Cape Fear. Other obsessions include books, her cat, Oliver, and baking the perfect pie crust. Her editing philosophy: aim to create something greater than the sum of its parts, find joy in the process, and do your best to never touch a mouse (unless it has cute ears ^.^)
