About me

Greetings, I'm Melanie Tse.

I’m Melanie Tse and I am currently a video editor/producer at The Dodo at Vox Media. When I’m not in an interview with a fellow pet parent or editing cute animal videos, I enjoy designing static ads as well as creating short-form video projects. I have 2 years of experience of video editing in Adobe Premiere and AfterEffects, production management, and design experience in InDesign and Photoshop. I graduated from Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications with a Television, Radio, and Film degree. During my time there, I adopted a dachshund named Mushu and developed a passion for skiing!
