From the time he began making Super-8 movies at age 13, David Koeppel has pursued the craft of editing with singular enthusiasm. After graduating from the U.S.C. School of Cinema, he laid the groundwork for a prolific career by assisting the venerable Dede Allen on the The Milagro Beanfield War, and working on such acclaimed series as Hill Street Blues and L.A. Law. As an editor, David has lent his talents to a diverse range of projects, including feature films, series from Paramount’s long-running Star Trek franchise, and CBS’s primetime drama The Unit, co-produced by David Mamet.  An extensive traveler who speaks German, David’s leisure activities include swimming, classical piano, bird watching, and the ceaseless pursuit of great movies, old and new. Based in Los Angeles, Koeppel is available for work worldwide.
