Kelley Dixon, ACE speaks with Avid

Kelley Dixon grew up with a single mom who taught grade school on Chicago's South Side. After graduating from Colorado State University with a degree in Journalism, Kelley's sights were set on a writing career in advertising.  So it was WEST!  To Los Angeles!  And NO openings in any of the ad firms of her dreams. So instead... Kelley landed a job in MGM's mail room, and there started a career in the film biz without going to film school! "thirtysomething" to "Goodwill Hunting" to "Breaking Bad" -- with many jobs in between, on the ladder from Production Assistant to Editor! Kelley has been editing Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, The Walking Dead, Preacher, HBO's Luck, and Shameless, among others.  She cut her first feature "The Goldfinch" in 2018, spent the Pandemic year editing Marvel's "The Falcon & The Winter Soldier", and most recently cut "Star Wars - Obi Wan Kenobi" and "Marvel's Wakanda Forever".

She has won 1 Emmy for Breaking Bad.  And has received 9 Emmy Nominations and 8 ACE Nominations for her work. Kelley is a trumpet and piano player, a Lego enthusiast and loves biking with her black lab, Eli.
