Since 2005 I have been working in Broadcast Post Production in the Washington D.C. area. In that time I have been honing my skills both as a Senior Editor (Pillar To Post - 6 yrs) and as a Technical Manger (Cerebral Lounge - 2 yrs)
Since November of 2011 I have been working under the title of Technical Manager for Cerebral Lounge, a boutique graphics and editing Post Production facility with offices in Silver Spring, Baltimore and DC. Focusing on the technical aspects of these facilities my job was to maintain an impeccable and efficient work environment for our designers and editors. Working with clients such as Discovery Channel, National Geographic and PBS has helped me develop a relentless commitment to ensuring the highest possible quality of work – from client supervised edit and design, to final delivery of assets.
As Senior Editor at Pillar To Post I spent 6+ years working to deliver high quality content for PBS broadcast. Utilizing programs such as Avid, Final Cut Pro, Pro Tools, and the Adobe Creative Suite I worked closely with our clients to edit and deliver nationally syndicated programs. Ensuring that all elements of these programs met strict technical guidelines was one of my major responsibilities.
Other skills I’ve acquired that are worth mentioning include-
HD Linear & Non-Linear editing and delivery; DVD Authoring including Blu-Ray; Compression and Transcoding; Video on Demand delivery to iTunes and Amazon; Signal Flow and Troubleshooting; Hardware/Software installation; Project Coordination and Management; New Hire Training and management.
