I am a fun loving, outdoor media professional who is not afraid of hard work, crazy hours and less than ideal working conditions. I have shot and edited video all over the world in rain and snow for various projects. I am also willing and able to put in the long hours, behind a desk, editing for months to craft a feature length project. I feel that the most important skill that any media professional can have is the ability to be an excellent communicator and storyteller. I am constantly honing my craft and skills in this area.
