Summer Simpson is a visual storyteller who specializes in creating top-quality non-fiction television programming, videos and documentaries. She crafts projects with advanced editing, writing and motion design techniques she has honed over the past 13 years. She has a keen sense of story arc and dramatic moments, sharpened over nearly a lifetime of bibliophilia and film appreciation. Her ears perk up and her eyes open wide when people tell her about a fascinating story that demands to be told, especially on topics of the arts, sciences and the natural world. And if this story is captured in exceptionally shot footage, she might just jump out of her chair and yell, “woot”!
Summer's projects have garnered several professional honors, including two News & Documentary Emmy nominations, two Webby nominations and an Ellie Award.
Summer is based in the Denver area, though she has lived in Virginia, California, Alaska, New Mexico, Costa Rica and Washington, D.C. When not at her edit station, you’ll likely find her hiking, road biking or at the wood shop carving.
