Nena Erb, ACE
Film & Television Editor
Nena Erb, ACE, is a picture editor based in Los Angeles. Raised in an Asian immigrant family, Nena's father wanted her to be a doctor and her mother wanted her to be a pianist with the LA Philharmonic. Nena wanted to be Andy Warhol.
Armed with an art degree, a friend brought her into the industry and she started working in various capacities in production. It was her stint as an associate producer that opened her eyes to the impact of editing. It combined her love of photography and storytelling into one and she was hooked. Since then, Nena has edited projects for Universal, Apple, HBO, and others.
In 2016, she received an Emmy award on HBO's documentary series Project Greenlight. In addition, she has received three ACE Eddie nominations; two for her work on HBO's comedy-drama series Insecure and the third for CW's acclaimed series Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. Nena received her second Emmy award in 2020 for her work on season 4 of Insecure and a third Emmy nomination in 2022 for the final season. She recently finished the highly anticipated feature Joy Ride directed by Adele Lim for Lionsgate. Her parents no longer ask if she'd reconsider medical school.
