An Engaging Award-Winning Filmmaker & Storyteller

 

I am an Emmy, a Telly, and an Associated Press Award Winner.  In being a jack-of-all trades I have worked on small independent film projects to big Hollywood TV productions.  I've worked at NBC/Universal in Chicago as a PEP Editor, a FOX affiliated news station as Chief Video Editor, a Video Journalist for a CBS affiliated news station, an Associate Producer at an ABC affiliate news station, and an Associate Creative Services Producer for WGN-TV in Chicago. I have a Bachelors in Film & Video from Columbia College and a Masters from DePaul University in Digital Cinema Production.  While I was earning my Masters at DePaul I assisted and trained journalism students and professors at DePaul's School of Communication in all aspects of video production.

My skills in media range from the conception, developing and consulting of a project to its production through to its completion and delivery:  Writing, Producing, Directing, Cinematography & Lighting, Audio Capturing, Editing, Audio Correction, Color Correction, Titling and Graphics, as well as Compression and Digital Delivery.  I also have hands-on multimedia experience, which includes film, video, broadcast & cable television, social media, and web development & design.  

In having a hands-on approach to media development and a solid practical knowledge of video and photographic techniques I possess the communication and interpersonal skills to work and communicate with a wide and diverse range of personnel and clientele.  I take great pride in being very results driven and oriented.
