How does it feel to be nominated for your first Emmy for Schitt’s Creek?
I’m proud of Schitt’s Creek and I’m honoured to be nominated for an Emmy for this exceptional Canadian series that means so much to so many people around the world.
What makes “Happy Ending” a stand out episode?
It reflects the loving inclusiveness that is at the core of Schitt’s Creek. The series finale is about the marriage of two people in love, David and Patrick. It’s not the “gay” marriage of these two people. It’s simply a loving celebration of an awesome couple like all weddings should be.
What is the most rewarding thing about editing Schitt’s Creek?
I enjoyed the team work with Paul Winestock, Gary Fluxgold, Howard Porter, Adam Roberts, Michael Liotta, Mark Stevens and Jimmy Rocket James Bredin. I loved working with the amazing father and son team, Daniel Levy and Eugene Levy. It always felt like we were three editors working in unison
