About Me

*CURRENTLY SEEKING WORK AS A FEATURE FILM EDITOR*

My experience runs a wide gamut. From Producing, Directing, Creative Writing, Conceptualizing, Storyboarding to Production Coordination, On-Set D.I.T. work, Client Care to Editing, Post-Production Supervision & Talent Selection & Mastering. I am also experienced in Quality Assurance, otherwise known as Video Quality Control. I have a wide Rolodex of talented individuals with whom I have worked in the past.

I worked as an Associate Producer for over 5 years. During my time as an AP I produced National Commercials & PSAs, Video for the Federal Government as well as Short marketing pieces, animated videos for web and marketing purposes and Corporate Videos.

I have also been afforded the opportunity to work on many personal projects. I have directed several music videos & short films, some of which are award winning and / or featured on TV.

My latest short film, "Alloway Lane" won 8 awards (including Best Editing, Best Film Producer in DC) and is currently featured on Amazon Prime.

I have handled such clients as Freddie Mac, Lockheed Martin, Clark Construction, American Red Cross, Sodexo and many more. I have always treated client / producer relationships with the utmost care, and am usually met with high praise and accolades at the completion of any given project.

At one point in my career I simultaneously juggled 15 projects for RaffertyWeiss Media while producing my own short films and music videos on the side, all meeting budget and deadline constraints.

In the ever-evolving world of technology I have maintained a level of knowledge necessary to complete my job and make key suggestions for purchasing that would help with client acquisition, editing and post production.

I have many skills and talents in the areas of creativity, writing, communication, conceptualization, technical prowess, work ethic and storytelling; all of which were contributing factors to my job as an Associate Producer.

If there is a technical question - I am the "go to guy". Very rarely am I unable to solve a problem.

My goal is to bring a client's vision to life and meet all pre / production & post-production requirements while maintaining a calm and agreeable attitude, even under pressure, keeping both clients & producers happy and, of course, meeting the deadline on-time and under budget.

I have been in the industry since 2004.
