About Me

I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Media Communications from Webster University. Most recently, I worked at a video production studio in Saint Louis, Missouri, where I learned a lot about on-location and in-studio video shoots, such as lighting setups, camera setups, and recording quality audio.

My main focus, however, is post-production. Video editing, encoding/transcoding/uploading, and DVD authoring/duplication are my strong points. I have extensive experience with Adobe CS6 production software such as Premiere Pro, Media Encoder, and Encore, as well as moderate experience with After Effects and Photoshop. I have used Final Cut Pro 7, Final Cut Pro X, and Logic Pro 9 in several projects as well.

Projects and TV Shows I assisted with at Fat Chimp Studios:

*All About Business - A 30 minute TV show covering local businesses in and around St. Louis
*Elsevier - eLearning tutorials covering various nursing skills from beginner to advanced.
*Hans Wieman, Allusions, Transitions, and several other hair restoration company commercials
*The Jeff Duncan Show - A show featuring a local financial expert, aired on several local networks

A current, consistent project I work on and have fun with is a blog my friends and I started called DAMNATION MAGAZINE. It is dedicated to fans of heavy metal music, horror movies, comics, games, etc. I contribute to the website by shooting and editing interviews with bands, writing album and concert reviews, and producing band spotlight articles that promote and share the music and story of up-and-coming bands of underground metal.

I have been in the industry since 2010.
