Professional + Creative + Collaborator

I'm a multidisciplinary video professional with over 12 years experience creating video content. I have the video and audio skills and tools necessary to provide a turnkey solution producing, directing, shooting, and editing videos ready for online uploads. From tech conferences in Santa Clara, Las Vegas, and Sarasota to a political ad in Yellowstone Park, to training videos in Canada, to a web series in London, to a vertical media campaign in St. Louis, New York, and Los Angeles –– I've clocked hundreds of hours producing, directing, shooting, and editing on-site, in hotel rooms, ballrooms, war rooms, and edit rooms.

If you're in need of a creative collaborator with more skin in the game, I’m ready to be a part of your team. My expertise at shooting highlight videos, interviewing on the conference floor, and delivering final edited videos on-site is a culmination of years of practical firsthand experience. I also bring a hardware & software knowledge which can help creatively and technically to ensure your video stands apart while keeping expenses on track. For more demanding jobs, I enlist colleagues from a collective of versatile, reliable and experienced industry professionals including; videographers, editors, gaffers, grip crews, talent, and location audio. This ability enables me to quickly scale, providing complete and customizable pre-pro, production, and post services that precisely align with any job.

In addition to keeping up with the latest in video technology, and my never-ending pursuit of aesthetics, I maintain a sharp focus on capturing a social and emotional intelligence we all find relevant. With anything creative, authenticity and accessibility is my starting point. I approach every job highly motivated and inspired to do my best work. The simple truth is I love what I do and I feel fortunate to do what I love for a living.

Work

Media One Creative – SXSW 2019

All shot at Canada House over 3 days during SXSW in Austin, TX. I shot B-roll, photography, and conducted multiple interviews. All available light. I also provided the post and editorial. I delivered this highlight video in addition to individual edits for each interview.

The content for this video was shot over 2 days in Las Vegas. I shot B-roll and a dozen interviews. I also provided the post and editorial. I delivered this highlight video in addition to individual edits for each interview. I also researched and provided the music track.

NXP – CES 2019

This clip is from the annual CES conference held in Las Vegas. The client is NXP Semiconductors. I shot B-roll and a dozen interviews over 2 days. I also shot this 16-minute non-stop, unedited, "walkthru" in which NXP CTO, Lars Reger highlights their catalog of technology demos on display. In addition to the obvious challenges shooting an uncut (and unrehearsed) 16-minute performance brings, the immense WiFi and RF interference presented unique complications for capturing audio with a wireless system.

This sizzle is another editorial example. AMD provided me with hours of raw footage from the event along with the brand graphics and CTA. I researched and provided the music track.

Freescale - MCU Support Services

This is a motion graphics example. Typically I'm asked to include some simple graphics –– logos or lower thirds. But I have years of experience working with After Effects and I am capable of doing more. This was a job that allowed me to use some of my animation skills. I was provided a script, approved copy, and the direction that it be a simple and clean design. The rest was left up to me. As in most cases, I also researched and provided the VO talent and music track.
