Hello! My full name is Josefin Fatima Azzam, although I go by Josie.
I was born and raised in Lincoln, Nebraska and even stuck around long enough to receive my BFA in Film and New Media at the University of Nebraska’s Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film.
I then worked as a full time editor of television documentaries at PBS affiliate NET Television before moving to Los Angeles in 2009 to attend The University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts to earn a MFA in Film Production with an emphasis in Editing. I graduated, despite several Critical Studies classes, in the spring of 2012.
I am a skilled Avid Editor, having worked in both documentary and fiction. I am interested in all genres and formats, especially anything that involves children. I have extensive experience troubleshooting both Avid and Final Cut systems. I pride myself on being organized, enthusiastic and highly dedicated to my work.
I love space (clearly), karaoke and Pinterest worthy crafts. I’ve always got a podcast recommendation and will gladly mock draft book-to-movie adaptations with you.
