About Me

I’m a highly versatile video editor and producer with over 15 years experience crafting compelling stories for a variety of entertainment and corporate clients. I posess very strong story telling skills across a wide array of genres and styles. I’ve worked with both short and long form content and have edited all manner of projects from dramatic features and documentaries, to shorts, trailers, music videos, promos, commercials and corporate work.

I can work independently with little direction, or as part of a part of a team, contributing both creatively and technically. I’m fast, adaptable and deadline driven. I have a keen sense of style, structure and pacing and really appreciate the art of the edit.

As of late a great deal of my work has been corporate, for companies such as Visa, Walmart, HP, CISCO, Towers Watson, Bank of the West and the Mill Valley Film Festival among others.

I started cutting on FCP in 1999. About three years ago I transitioned to Adobe Creative Cloud, now working with Premiere Pro and After Effects CC 2018, along with the rest of the suite. I've also shot, and worked with footage from professional digital cameras to iPhones and GoPros. I also excel in finishing; color grading, and sound mixing. I'm very knowledgeable of video compression for every kind of deliverable, from the web and mobile devices, to broadcast and DCP’s for the big screen.

I love bringing a high quality and impactful product into the world, and moreover, I like to surround myself with those people who feel the same.

I have been in the industry since 2000.
