RESUME

I have learned from

18 YEARS OF DIVERSE EXPERIENCE

to develop a comprehensive understanding of my client's needs.

I've worked on live television programs from pro sports events to large venue concerts, blockbuster films as a vfx artist and animator, independent and corporate video productions as an all-around producer and videographer, and just about everything else in between.  

I have studied broadcasting and production technology along with animation, 3D modeling, visual effects, screenwriting, directing, lighting for cinematography, editing, color grading and production management.
