Most of the video visual content on this website was executed under my hand as either a director, camera man, or editor - often all three simultaneously. My experience in production ranges across a wide variety of mediums including independent short and feature films, studio television, professional features, commercials, music videos, and web and internet content. I practiced experimental digital design and traditional Visual Arts at Brown University - and utilize an array of multimedia applications through cinematography, video editing, and post effecting to make digital video content and execute and achieve the desired vision of my clients. My passion is directing, cinematography, and the power of good narrative story telling. In collaboration with my clients I've shot and produced over eighty digital shorts all published to YouTube and reaching view counts of over 2 million cumulatively.
While digital content has become a more recent passion of mine, my experience in project management and business is wide ranged and extensive. My primary objective is to adequately assess the needs of clients and produce quality content that impacts a maximum target audience within a constantly expanding digital marketplace.
I'm enthusiastic about design and visual expression. I've always loved film and the worlds they create and am thrilled to be contributing making new visions a possibility. I recently graduated from APU with an emphasis on Cinematic Studies.
I have always possessed a distinct appreciation for storytelling and the ability of a film’s visuals to bring narratives to life. By designing sets consistent in visual character and craftsmanship, I hope to bridge the gap between the imaginative landscape and the tangible world, in which an audience can more fully experience the realm of film. As I have been trained in Fine Art I achieve such means through a variety of artistic practices including physical construction, painting, color theory, and concept illustrations.
Music and sound design are my passions. I am fascinated by how music and emotions are linked. I love the process of watching a scene and coming to an understanding of the emotions of the characters, as well as the audience. From there, translating that into music that represents that emotion is an invigorating and rewarding process to me that is always a new experience and never gets old.
My passion for editing is matched only by my love for good stories. I love being able to take someone's vision for a story and turn it in to a reality through the editing process. My experience in editing ranges from broadcast television to scripted and non scripted narratives.
An editor's job is to have his work go unnoticed. I love the art of cutting and creating stories through video editing. From public television to scripted narrative, I've gotten to serve on both sides of production and found a love for "fix[ing] it in post." Editing communicates the gift of the story, and I above all desire to be an effective communicator.
