Dear Members of the Review and Select Committee,
I would be remiss not to begin by expressing how much of a candidate I am who is deeply, deeply passionate about the art and immersive capability of visual storytelling. Dedicated, experienced, and eager - with passions that include video production, documentary, filmmaking, reporting and writing.
From my extensive work as a videographer and video journalist for companies like Nike, adidas, Under Armour, New Balance, Asics and NASDAQ, to my time spent as a professional fashion photographer, my true impetus rests in a desire to contribute to the integrity of creative reporting, and telling documented narratives in multimedia platforms. My experiences include everything from my short-form documentaries and cultural web-series that have been featured on CNN and the Washington Post, to my fast-paced, onsite video reporting and proficient shooting, writing and editing for Fortune 500 companies. I have come to appreciate and develop all facets of production and documentation with some of the most influential companies in the industry, fostering a unique professionalism, creativity, and style over the past 6 years.
From onsite filmmaking in Berlin, Nuremberg, London, Morocco, Cairo, Trinidad & Tobago, NYC and more, to the meticulous storyboarding, conceptualization, writing and editing in Premiere Pro, After Effects and Final Cut Pro x, the innovation and artistry are true passions of mine with a worth ethic that feels unfulfilled without new and engaging challenges. Coupled with a Northwestern and UW-Madison education in communication arts, film theory, media production, english, writing and literature, I have developed a unique artistry and approach to efficacy and proficiency within a work environment. I have produced and edited over 500 videos for various companies, including commercials, interviews, documentaries and marketing campaigns. In addition, I have great experience in working both independently and leading a team.
This is not just a 9 - 5 job. This is a job that takes your weekends, and challenges your creative mind creatively...and I relish that. I appreciate you taking the time to review my credentials and experience, and I would love to be a part of your tremendous organization.
All the best,
