I currently work as a freelance editor, producer and animator in New York City. Some of my past clients include: FutureClaw Magazine, 1stAveMachine, MTV 2, MTV U, iNK Stories Films and VBS.tv. Aside from taking on various freelance gigs I have recently formed Exact Neutral, a collective, with a few of my very talented collaborators. Check out our Vimeo channel to view recently finished projects at http://vimeo.com/user3484328/videos. Please check back frequently as that content is just a smattering of the work that’s coming out. We have a lot of great stuff in the pipeline.
We are currently looking for representation and opportunities for amazing collaboration. We are also shopping around several television pilots. Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in seeing them. We’d love to arrange a screening for you.
I received my BA in creative writing in 2002 from the University of Illinois Chicago. There I developed an interest in narrative that led to my career in film and television. After finishing my degree I immersed myself in the film world right away. I started by working on student films and taking classes at School of the Art Institute and Harold Washington. Doing this I quickly discovered I had the knack for post and an overall fire in my belly to work in film. I took my first editing job in 2003. After that I worked as an editor, then producer, then animator on various documentaries, industrials, concerts, music videos and anything else that crossed my path. In 2006 I moved to New York to cultivate my career. Since then I have had amazing opportunities to work with some of the best talent and best companies here.
Most recently, from 2007 until December 2009 I was At MTV International where I produced and edited short form content: promos and original shorts. Along with demonstrating creativity and a strong musical sensibility as an editor, I developed keen story producing skills. I also worked as a motion graphics designer and oversaw other designers in promo creation including tune-ins and info graphics to show identities.
Now I am back to freelancing along with finishing my directorial debut, an ambitious music video project. Over the years I have cut my teeth in network television, documentary, music video and more. I would love to have the opportunity to put my experience to work for you.
