Lori McCarthy
Based in New York City, USA

I have  worked in the entertainment industry in New York City for the last 10 years. I've worked on documentary television series such as “World’s Edge” and "Breaking Borders" for Travel Channel as well as feature films including the documentary, Bully, and the independent feature, Desert Cathedral. I'm currently an editor on House Hunters International.

Before I knew I wanted to work in television and film, I worked with various social and environmental justice organizations as an advocate. I worked at a woman's shelter in Northern Arizona and volunteered with the Black Mesa Water Coalition. It was there that I met Indigenous Rights activist, Klee Benally. I volunteered as crew some of his video projects and this experience inspired me to combine my own passions for art, storytelling, and social justice by making documentaries. 

Shortly thereafter, I studied Activist Media Production at the Z Media Institute in Woods Hole, Massachusetts which solidified my desire to become a media maker. I then moved to New York City to get my BA in Documentary Film and Cultural Studies at The New School University.  

It is my hope to take the skills I've developed as an editor in film and television to focus on editing and creating character-driven documentaries that spread awareness, inspire people to take action against injustice, and promote empathy.
