About Me

As an award-winning video production producer/editor and manager, with 25 years of varied creative, technical, management, and instructional experience, and with a B.S., Communications/Major: Television and Film from Temple University, I am looking for the right opportunity to combine my skills and experience with an organization looking to grow their business, enhance their image, broaden their communications reach, or all of teh above. I am willing to relocate for the right opportunity.

As an experienced Media Production Professional in several organizations, as well as an active, hands-on Producer/Director/Editor, I am confident that I would bring an unparalleled combination of staff and facilities management skills, and production and post-production services skills to this your organization.

I have been instrumental in designing, proposing, acquiring, supervising and operating broadcast-level video and audio production and post-production facilities for several organizations, reducing costs and increasing efficiency.

In my prior career assignments I was responsible for working closely with senior management to make sure that their media departments were meeting their communications needs and objectives. I was also responsible for recruiting, managing, and developing technical and creative staff in each of those organizations.

Additionally, I actively developed concepts, produced, directed, edited and completed various types of programming, including promos, marketing and training programs for various types of businesses. I have managed creative teams of production professionals including DVD authors, video editors, camera operators, and audio editors and mixers.

I routinely supervise the entire production and post-production process from studio and location shooting to offline editing, final online, audio mixing and layback, and DVD authoring and replication.

As an active producer, I am responsible for the selection and hiring of all creative and technical production and post-production staff, including producers, directors, graphic designers, set designers, editors, audio mixers and others, and have cast and hired various on-camera and voice-over talent.

I am an expert-level editor, thoroughly experienced in Avid Symphony/Media Composer and Final Cut Pro systems. I am also an experienced DVD author familiar with Adobe’s and Apple’s associated products including Photoshop, After Effects, Motion, Color, DVD Studio Pro, Encore DVD, and more.

As my references will attest, I am organized and detail oriented, have strong verbal and written skills, and work well under pressure and deadlines.

I have been involved in several organizations including ITVA, LA Avid Users Group, and the 168 Hour Film Project, which awarded my short documentary, “The Wheelchair Angel,” BEST DOCUMENTARY.

Thank you for your consideration.
