IN SHORT…

I’m a storyteller. I enjoy creating in all mediums, from still photography, video, and animation, to audio engineering, voice over acting, scriptwriting and interactive media. I have been working in the creative production field more than decade to create high quality visual and audio stories. I have always enjoyed the world of creativity, and offer a range of skills and services to my clients.

I began my journey as a freelance editor about 6 years ago, and I haven’t turned back once. Between being able to choose the right, creative, and passionate people to work with, to the freedom to compose music, which is my biggest passion in life aside from film, I’m exactly where I want to be, and where I NEED to be.

Let me help YOU tell YOUR story.

 

MY BACKGROUND.

I have been working in the production world for over 15 years. I’ve worked in every role imaginable; from producer, director, writer, camera guy, composer, animator, and editor. I started in the field as a producer, but quickly learned I was more drawn towards the post-production side of things. I’ve been a musician my entire life, aside from work, making music as “Skeleton Beach” is all I do. I am always creating. My brain is constantly looking for the next creative endeavor. This is why I have built such a vast “Swiss-army” skill-set over the years.

For editing I use Adobe Premiere Pro as well as Final Cut Pro X.

For audio engineering, whether it’s recording music or voice over, or doing a full on audio mix for film, I use Ableton Live 10 Suite, Logic Pro X, and Adobe Audition.

For animation I use Adobe After Effects.

As far as the Adobe Suite, I have that covered from top to bottom as maybe noticed from above, fromPremiere Pro, Audition, and After Effects to Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. If it’s a thing people do, I can most likely do it.
