Experienced, Collaborative, Creative
Experienced in production and back office jobs in feature films, CATV magazine shows, live news, industrial and branded videos for online distribution. I can write, shoot, edit and produce. Balancing budgets against time and creative is a craft I have learned through millions of dollars of productions. On the interactive side, I am comfortable with almost any software engineering team, and have a current grasp of technical & creative needs for integration from large screen to mobile.
