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.

The power of networking!

In March I joined the networking group BNI. This is quite a step for me. Not only is it a solid commitment to my career, it also is a huge undertaking for my personality. Meeting new people is HARD! I love hearing different people’s stories about how they got where they are and where they […]

For Broadcast

Well, I did my first ever commercial for broadcast TV. It was a really fun project and quite the ride as it came in as a rush job. Lots of ideas flying around and alterations and late nights. I really enjoyed the experience and the new people I met along the way. Broadcast has it’s […]

Theater

For the past year or so I have been privileged to be asked to shoot performance videos for a number of solo performers throughout the Bay Area. Many of whom are students of David Ford, who teaches classes at The Marsh. I love being present at these performances. It is so wonderful to be able […]

Happy New Year!

2015! Where has the time gone? It feels like just yesterday I was quitting my job and jumping into freelancing full time. Like many, during this month I tend to reflect on the last year and see the ups and downs and ways to change for the better. There are always faults to find and […]

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. […]

January 2013

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 […]
