Service Description

I did Computer Graphics and Visual Effects on Oscar award winning movies like Lord of the Rings and other movies such as Ice Age2 and Shrek2 to commercials and TV movies. I also do Graphic Design and Digital Paint on freelance project based jobs.

One of my current clients is a fashion design and tailoring studio based in Tarzana CA. I am getting their company up and running in terms of internet visibility doing everything from their website, and social marketing to their Yelp profile.

If you need creative project management I do that as well. On a recent job I consulted for a Reality Show in development to help with various aspects of production that helped to get the show ready for shopping by securing a producer who is currently shopping it around major networks.

Research and writing are other skills I have to offer. I have written articles and exposes, blogging for online entertainment applications and research for movies and reality shows. I'm adept at writing articles about up and coming trends and love writing reviews for just about anything.
