Resume

Available at the beginning of April!  I hope you will consider me for co-executive producer, editor and producer/editor (preditor) positions.

  • 10+ 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 over 10 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 Avid User Certified on Avid Media Composer, having recently completed Moviola’s Avid Media Composer Editing Essentials and Effects Essentials courses. This bolstered technical knowledge combined with my storytelling and producing background makes me a strong candidate for an editor position.  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!
