Athena Wheaton is a video editor, animator, and digital artist with a passion for rhythm and visual language. She specializes in editorial for short-form content like music videos, trailers, promos, documentaries/featurettes, and narrative shorts. Her editing approach is informed by a lifetime of musicianship, visual art, and dance.

She is experienced in the Adobe Creative Suite, Final Cut, and DaVinci Resolve. 

Athena's creative pursuits extend beyond moving image media. She spent her undergraduate years as an alto in the Yale Women's Slavic Chorus, spending the last two years as Business Manager and Musical Director, respectively. In 2017, she recorded and produced an album for the group, which you can listen to here. Her hobbies include embroidery, knitting, and crochet, and playing the cello.
