My goal is to collaborate with clients to create captivating stories that resonate with audiences.
I am an editor at heart, but this has led me down two other paths, directing and producing.

After the idea is pushed forward I wil lay the groundwork to ensure a positive and productive workflow. Keeping a tight schedule I make sure the project is both realistic and cost effective without compromising quality.
Once a style is established that best tells the story, I assemble a team of creative specialists to bring the project to life. The team will have one focus, to complete the task at hand while providing a collaborative and professional environment.
This is where it all comes together allowing the pieces of the puzzle to take shape. Whether you need editing, motion graphics or 3D work I can help achieve the look you need to tell the story that will captivate viewers.
