Service Description

I have deep and varied experience as a producer/editor for nonfiction and promotional video content that appeals strongly to targeted audiences. The most important qualities I bring to the table are my strong sense of how to tell unique stories through video, and my experience with engaging and mobilizing communities through media.

I spent the past few years working for the Emmy and Webby-winning online and cable television network Current TV, where I was one of only a handful of people to produce content on a daily basis. I also did this with great success, leading campaigns with some of the highest rates of interaction and participation on the network. At Current, I wrote, shot, edited and produced content that was fresh, more immersive and essential to a audience that I think will translate well to any variety of video projects that you may need.
