Editor. World Traveler. Dog Lover.
Farah’s passion for editing first began when she was 9 years old and would film her friends and family using her dad’s VHS camera. She would edit that footage together, tape to tape, using two VCRs.
One summer, at the age of 19, Farah learned how to edit on an Avid, before even entering film school. While she attended USC’s Film Production Program, she honed her craft by editing as many student films as she could get her hands on. During her years at USC, she was hired to edit a project for director Clive Barker.
Farah graduated USC’s Film Program with honors in 2000 and soon after, she found herself being flown out to NY to work with Mariah Carey — a relationship that is ongoing to this very day.
Besides being Mariah’s personal editor, she has worked closely with other top industry icons such as Prince, Jennifer Lopez, and many others.
Farah has edited all over the world and enjoys traveling for work. Traveling has led her to cut in some unique locations — including dressing rooms, on planes and private jets, in bookstores, in trailers, — you name it, she’s probably edited there.
When Farah is not working, she can often be found reading, writing, or taking a nap with her dog Ziggy. She also likes to give back to the community by volunteering with various animal rescue organizations.
Farah X edits on Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro and Avid. She is currently based in both Los Angeles and New York.
