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 shooter, editor, and motion graphics designer.
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.
