About Me

Nena Erb, ACE, is a two time Emmy-winning 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.

After graduating 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 HBO, Apple, Universal, and others.

In 2016, she received an Emmy award for her work on HBO's documentary series Project Greenlight. In addition, she has received two ACE Eddie nominations for her work, one for season three of HBO's comedy-drama series, Insecure and the other for CW's acclaimed series Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. Nena received her second Emmy award in 2020 for her work on season 4 of Insecure. Her parents no long ask if she'd reconsider medical school.
