Sila hates bios…but if you must know, she was born and raised in Alabama by Turkish doctors - go figure. She managed to finish college in 4 years (with a gap year in the middle) by somehow making sure all her credits transferred as she bounced between 5 different schools, including The New School, University of Toronto, Emerson, Trinity College (Dublin), and finally getting her degree from NYU Tisch. After working on Sound Design & Foley for “deferred payment” and credit on indie features (Slingblade, Niagara Niagara, Tromeo & Juliet - yes, a Troma film), she needed to pay rent so she took a job as an asst editor at a commercial edit house. From there she continued her tradition of bouncing around and worked as a freelance editor, a production coordinator, agency producer and finally landed back in post as a producer. Today she is Executive Producer/Partner of Arcade Edit, an award winning bicoastal editorial collective and trusted collaborator, providing high level talent and processes to agencies such as Wieden & Kennedy, Arts & Letters, Anomaly, BBDO, Saatchi & Saatchi, Droga, 72 & Sunny and more.
