Nena Erb, ACE

Nena Erb, ACE, is a picture editor based in Los Angeles. Raised in an immigrant family, Nena's father wanted her to be a doctor and her mother wanted her to be a pianist with the L.A. Philharmonic. Nena wanted to be Andy Warhol.

Armed with an art degree, a friend brought her into the industry and she started working in various capacities in production. It was her stint as an associate producer that opened her eyes to the impact of editing. It combined her love of photography and storytelling into one and she was hooked. Since then she has edited shows for HBO, Universal, Apple, and others.
