I'm a freelance video editor, sometimes videographer, working out of the Bay Area, California. I use Final Cut Pr, After Effects, DVD Pro, Illustrator, and more. I work well with clients to create a wonderful end project. In my free time I like to be outdoors, read and climb.

A Year Later

It’s been a long time since the last post and I really need to be better. I’m going to make this something I focus on. At least one post a month should happen. It’s been a busy year. It began with the Detroit International Auto Show in January. I joined with Voix Productions to shoot […]

Weddings

Summer is around the corner and I’ve entered into the world of wedding videography. This is something that I never actively sought out and mostly avoided. However when I received a call from a fellow videographer that I’d met on a shoot only days before I decided to see what this niche had to offer. […]

Certifications

I’ve been looking at various certification programs. I’m going to begin by getting certified as A.C.E. for Photoshop and then go for After Effects. Photoshop first, because I see it as a good base for After Effects and because I happened upon a very reasonably priced certification prep program. I’m excited about this venture. In […]

Learning Curve

Hello World! I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the little birds that are coming around my house to peep and chirp in the new Spring weather. I’ve also been hard at work, but I’ve finally caught up with projects enough to feel like I have some time to breathe. I’ve realized some areas where growth is needed. […]

Greetings all! I hope you have had a successful beginning to your New Year! I could not have asked for a better start to the year! I have be swamped with work and learning more things constantly! If I’m not editing I’m on shoots in beautiful locations such as the Santa Cruz mountains and San […]

End of year reflections

With 2012 almost over, I’ve been reflecting on the past year with some frequency. A lot has happened to me this year. I’ve finally jumped fully into a career and I’m happy with it. I’m learning so many new things daily and meeting some amazing new people. I’ve moved to a new town, always a […]

Grokker

I’ve been brought on for freelance work with a new start up company in San Jose, Grokker. They aim to provide informational videos of yoga, cooking and more to knowledge seeking individuals. I’ve only done one yoga video so far, but I love working with this new company and I hope they do well. Looking […]

Dogsbody

I’m settling into my new home, but still keeping busy! I’ve been brought on for some video work for Erik Ehn’s play “Dogsbody” being performed at Intersection for the Arts in San Francisco. I always love being surrounded by artists and their creations. This play portrays a very sad a real story and I’m so […]

Brief Vacation

Big changes!! Moving and quitting the day job. In order to keep my mind fresh and stress free I have been on month and a half long vacation. Getting out and enjoying some of this summer before its cold weather and rain again. I’ll be full of more energy and hopefully will have a mini […]

Learning New Things

After doing the poster, tshirt and video for LiZie MoVeS, and a chiropractor video I took a brief break before the crammed weekend of the 48 hour film festival. I’m now caught up on my rest and back to my regular schedule. Time to get learning! I was planning on doing a little more After […]
