I'm a multifaceted media producer with skills and experience spanning a wide gamut of audio visual production disciplines.

I adhere to a high standard of aesthetic and technical excellence regardless of whether I am designing an animated instructional video for a corporate conference or shouldering the entire post production workflow for a feature film.

I work at my own studio in Los Angeles where I have 2 edit bays, camera and lighting equipment, and a voice/music recording facility.

Service Description

I offer turn-key production of corporate and commercial video content as well as full-service post-production of film and video projects.

I have experience working with large brands such as Mattel, JVC, Cleveland Golf, and Avia Sportswear to create promotional, instructional, training, and commercial content for use in boardrooms, convention halls, websites, broadcast, and in-box DVD's. I am able to turn a list of bullet points into a slick and stimulating audio/visual product.

I have over a decade of experience as a producer/editor in the film and television industry. I have done sound design, additional dialogue recording, color correction, composite effects, music composition, motion graphics, and more for everything from music videos to independent feature films.

I am an efficient professional, an easy-going collaborator, and a creative problem-solver. I take pride in my craftsmanship and strive to create media that is always something more than simply "good enough." I aim to sustain mutually beneficial relationships with every client I serve.
