A few words...

I grew up dreaming of working with the Muppets. Since watching a behind the scenes documentary on “Snow White” when I was five, I wanted to be one of those behind the scenes people making magic appear on screen. Through high school and college, video production was my “thing” and I searched for every opportunity to increase my skills and knowledge. Since then, I have crossed the continent and globe as a Production Manager and Editor/Preditor. I enjoy dropping into different worlds to taking masses of raw media to find and construct a cohesive story. Every production – corporate, television or educational – brings new challenges which I see as opportunities to increase my skills and deliver the seemingly impossible.

My style is quirky, my work ethic is dogged, my projects and timelines are exceptionally well organized.

I love working as one of those people in black, creating – if not magic – entertaining pixels for the masses. You can see my production credits and some examples of my work herein. Since earning a Masters of Information Technology (with a focus on audio/visual archiving and social media) which took me to Italy for a year as the librarian for FSU's International Program's Study Center in Florence, I have diversified my experience to include writing, website building, photography, and other forms of storytelling. You can check out the "Otherwheres I Roam" section for more on what has occupied my creative time like traveling to Uganda in Jan 2015 for Hackers for Charity on a story-gathering mission. In addition to great adventures, new locations, excellent meals, and beautiful vistas, I'm always open to a great gig in tv.

Video Production is my first and most longstanding passion... and I still hope to one day work with the Muppets.

Work Examples

Unfortunately a great deal of what I have done can't be published online due to content restrictions. One of these days I'll have need to put together a reel, in the meantime here are a few exaples of my work of which I'm proud. If you don't see a particular style of piece you're interested in, contact me

    Enjoy the whole episode or skip to Act 3 "That's What She Said: Listening" for the part I edited.

  • Solid Works World

    petentials.com Promo

    A promotional piece for an internet start-up, working from a rought script and shot footage, it was very much a "preditor" piece.

  • Solid Works World

    Compass Group North America

    A "take our assets and make something" piece, after many iterations is both a recruiting tool and played in the North American headquarters lobby.



Professional Credentials

Freelance Editor

Final Cut Pro and Premiere “Preditor” (2007-Present) --Fully confident working in a post house suite, on-site ballroom, or field production office on a laptop. I can work closely with a Producer or independently (and even remotely) to take concept to finished product. My strength is in Final Cut Pro and Premiere, but I dabble in Photoshop, DVD Studio, Motion, AfterEffects, Aperature and Dreamweaver – I will learn enough for the project at hand. My Post Supervisor experience and Project Coordination skills mean that I instead of just a mouse-jockey-for-hire, I'm called upon to organize projects, media, and resources as well as troubleshoot problems. My geeky creds mean that I speak transcoding, compression, bitrates, FTP, html, transfer, and-- occasionally-- twitter.
