Learning After Effects early on was essential in solidifying my love for this profession as was owning my first Prosumer camera, the Panasonic DVX 100A.  I worked making commercials in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for the beginning of my career and also was the head of post production at a company I co-owned and helped to create. I then moved to the D.C. area in 2010 and have been working as a freelancer creating video for numerous companies and organizations. My career has taken me across the world to Kazakhstan and up and down the east side of the United States.

Presently, I work in the D.C., Maryland, and Northern Virginia area as a freelance video professional.

I specialize in corporate and non-profit videos and essentially anything finding its way to the web. In addition I enjoy creating sketch comedy as well as music videos. At the top right of this page you will see a button that links to many of the music videos I have created.

The photo art at the top of each page in my site are also my creations.

SHOOTING:  I employ an extensive 4K DSLR package including a slider, jib, Ronin M, green screen, and plenty of lighting and grip essentials.

POST PRODUCTION:  I use the most recent version of the Adobe Creative Cloud suite primarily utilizing Premiere, After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator, and Audition. I work out of an office in Herndon, Virginia and I can be mobile with my laptop when the need arises.
