A few words...

I grew up dreaming of working with the Muppets. Since watching a behind the scenes documentary on “Snow White” when I was five, I wanted to be one of those behind the scenes people making magic appear on screen. Through high school and college, video production was my “thing” and I searched for every opportunity to increase my skills and knowledge. Since then, I have crossed the continent and globe as a production manager and Final Cut Pro Editor. I enjoy dropping into different worlds to taking masses of raw media to find and construct a cohesive story. Every production – corporate, television or educational – brings new challenges which I see as opportunities to increase my skills and deliver the seemingly impossible.

My style is quirky, my work ethic is dogged, my projects and timelines are exceptionally well organized.

I love working as one of those people in black, creating – if not magic – entertaining pixels for the masses. You can see my production credits and some examples of my work herein. I have been a little more choice in my production projects since beginning Graduate school in Information Technology with a focus on aduio/visual archiving, knowledge management and social media. From 2012-2013, I was the Supervising Librarian for Florida State University's Study Center in Florence, Itlay and you can check out the "Otherwheres I Roam" section for more on what has most recently occupying my time. Back in the US and a recent MSIT graduate, in addition to great adventures, new locations, excellent meals, and beautiful vistas, I'm still always open to a great gig in tv.

Video Production is my first and most longstanding passion... and I still hope to one day work with the Muppets.

Work Examples

Unfortunately a great deal of what I have done can't be published online due to content restrictions. One of these days I'll have need to put together a reel, in the meantime here are a few exaples of my work of which I'm proud. If you don't see a particular style of piece you're interested in, contact me

  • GUTS Open

    GUTS Open

    I created the concept for this Opening for the "My Family's got GUTS" series for Nickelodeon. I executed it entirely: edit, photoshop elements, the works.

  • Solid Works World

    Solid Works World 2012

    Typical recap video piece: edited onsite over the 3 days of the convention and played initially on the final morning on the big screens in the convention hall.

  • Solid Works World

    petentials.com Promo

    A promotional piece for an internet start-up, working from a rought script and shot footage, it was very much a "preditor" piece.

  • Solid Works World

    Compass Group North America

    A "take our assets and make something" piece, after many iterations is both a recruiting tool and played in the North American headquarters lobby.



Professional Credentials

Freelance Editor

Final Cut Pro “Preditor” (2007-Present) --Fully confident working in a post house suite, on-site ballroom, or field production office on a laptop. I can work closely with a Producer or independently (and even remotely) to take concept to finished product. My strength is in Final Cut Pro, but I dabble in Photoshop, DVD Studio, Motion, Aperture and Dreamweaver – I will learn enough for the project at hand. My Post Supervisor experience and Project Coordination skills mean that I instead of just a mouse-jockey-for-hire, I'm called upon to organize projects, media, and resources as well as troubleshoot problems. My geeky creds mean that I speak transcoding, compression, bitrates, FTP, html, transfer, and -- occasionally -- twitter.
