Over the years, the projects I’ve worked on include national award winning TV spots, feature-length and short documentaries, national corporate and non-profit video, reality TV and scripted travel shows, shorts and feature films. I have played the role of Producer, Director (doc/vérité style), Interviewer, 1st A.D., Grip, Location Manager, Editor (Avid & FCP), VO, TelePrompter and Client Service, and have experience in location scouting, casting, managing a small production company, and even driving a big ol’ grip truck. Some of the channels I’ve worked for include BBC Worldwide, The Sci-Fi Channel, The Canadian Food Network, BNN (out of Holland) and The History Channel. In the ad agency world (where I began some time ago), I worked with the world-renowned agencies Arnold Worldwide and Digitas, and in the corporate/non-profit sector I have worked with companies such as General Motors, Celebration Foods, Universities such as UPenn and Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts, hospitals, entrepreneurs and many small, local businesses as well.
On the creative side, I adore the process of storytelling, and am in the field because I love it so. I’m passionate, work hard, love being part of a team and consider my work a form of play. While producer skills run in my veins, my true love is directing. After directing a project, I can hardly wait to come back to the edit room to see the footage come alive. One of the most interesting parts of my experience has been having the opportunity to interview hundreds of people from Fortune 100 CEO’s to average Joe’s. I’ve also been lucky enough to work with (and learn from) some of the most extraordinary, creative, talented (and just plain ol’ fun) people in the business, and well, I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that – it’s really been a blast.
