Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $38

I've been a professional editor for 4 years, working first in Live Television (for FOX Sports, Horse Racing TV and the NFL Network) and presently in the far more technical Post Production world for a company in Culver City called BakedFX. I am familiar with all kinds of software and edit primarily with Autodesk Smoke, a state-of-the-art platform, as well as more common platforms such as Final Cut Pro (7 or X) and Avid Media Composer.

But most importantly it's my experience that allows me to offer comprehensive editing help. From projects as complicated as "all we have is this footage, now what?" to endeavors as simple as a technical fix, a conversion of some kind, I am trained and skilled.
