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 post production, video editing, studio and field camera operation.

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 (FTP) Delivery.  I also have real-world, working, multimedia experience which includes film & video, broadcast & cable television, social media, and website development, design and building.  

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.
