In the course of over 15 years as a media professional, I have provided my services as video editor, motion graphics designer, and post production supervisor for a wide range of clients including Cisco Systems, Microsoft, Intuit, Skype, Warner Brothers, Hewlett Packard, Levi's, Banana Republic, VISA and Starbucks.
My work on numerous documentaries has been seen on PBS (American Masters), Discovery Channel, BBC, and Animal Planet.
I recently finished writing/directing my first short film, the award-winning, "Enter The Dark".
Unique traits: I have a unique combination of talents that keep my clients happy and have them coming back for their next job. I am dedicated to telling a good story. My passion is finding the emotional content within each message and drawing that out so the viewer is engaged. It needn't matter if the message is about an insurance claims adjuster helping put someone's life back together after Hurricane Katrina, or a housewife in Virginia who is battling to keep the coal companies from blasting away the hill behind her house, every video has a story to tell and a connection to make. In addition to my skills as an editor, I also have a strong graphics and design background. I have created numerous title treatments and animated elements for corporate show opens, 30-sec commercial spots, DVD menus, and documentary films. As a musician, I also have a keen ear for sound mixing and sound design. While images tell a story to your eyes and mind, sound directly impacts your emotions. Special attention to sound design and mixing will elevate your project from good to great. I also realize that delivering the finished product is just one aspect of a job well-done. My loyal clients also return to me because of our personal connection. It's no fun to work with someone that you have difficulties with and in this business, clear and open communication is key.
