Resume

I am currently seeking a permanent position at a Seattle company or organization, but I am also available for freelance TV producing opportunities in Seattle, Los Angeles and on the road.   I hope you will consider me for co-executive producer, editor and producer/editor (preditor) positions.

  • 14 years producing docu-series television. 5+ years hands-on Avid Media Composer.
  • Proven track record leading and facilitating teams in post-production and the field.
  • Known for fluid and effective collaboration with executives and networks.
  • Excellent writing, editing, planning, implementation and organizational skills.
  • Avid User Certified on Avid Media Composer.
  • Completed Avid Media Composer Editing Essentials & Effects Essentials at Moviola.

As a television producer with 14 years experience, I’m well-balanced between post production and the field. In post, I collaborate well with editors and producers, facilitate content and notes with networks and executives, write extensive voice-over and pick-ups, and enjoy editing on Avid Media Composer. In the field, I conduct rigorous interviews, direct camera with an eye for story, coordinate cast and crew, and keep the production moving.

I am also Avid User Certified on Avid Media Composer, having completed Moviola’s Avid Media Composer Editing Essentials and Effects Essentials courses. Please check out my reel.

I consider myself an idea person and take pride in being creative and innovative. I write fiction on the side, and I have dabbled in screenwriting and game development over the years. I am nothing if not responsible and organized, and I never let anything slip through the cracks. You’ll find me to be a nice guy who works hard and delivers quality.

Thank you!
