Passionate filmmaker with a BFA degree, professional video editor

I am a professional editor and filmmaker. I currently am working on a feature documentary, scheduled for release later this year. I love movies, and enjoy tutoring in video production, filmmaking, and editing on Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro X, AVID, and iMovie editing softwares. I love to share knowledge regardless of your skill level - no question is too simple! This work also makes me passionate about helping people with computers, so also am available for general computer tutoring as well... [more]


General Computer

I use a computer all day every day and am happy to provide help for someone who is trying to hone in on specific skills, or who needs general help using a computer for their needs - I am patient, informative and here to help!


Adobe Photoshop


Web Design

In my work as a filmmaker I am frequently involved in creating new websites or updating older ones. In my case, I primarily do this for films or filmmaker portfolios, but have found myself involved in many other types as well. I primarily use SquareSpace and know that web design program extremely well, but am also well versed to assist with Wordpress. I can also connect elements created in Adobe programs and get them onto your website. For websites requiring more customization I can get you started and teach you the fundamentals to go forward. I also utilize other benefits of running a website so can answer further general questions you may have on the subject.


Video Production

At Chapman University I graduated with high honors and a BFA in Film Production, along with a Leadership Studies minor which goes hand in hand with the collaborative nature of the film industry. I have been editing movies since I was 12 years old, started in iMovie then moved into Final Cut Pro, and now I work entirely in AVID and Premiere. I am fluent in both AVID and Premiere which are the industry standards depending on the scale of your project. I am currently working on a feature documentary in post-production. For most of last year I worked on a documentary called 'The Last Animals' which premiered at Tribeca in April and is currently making the festival rounds. Prior to that I directed, shot, and edited an indie feature documentary. Editing has been my primary professional work, but I have worked in all capacities in documentary filmmaking, from camera operating, to directing, to producing. Narrative film has been a major part of my work and passion as well. Most of all, I love movies, and I love sharing knowledge and passion with aspiring filmmakers of all ages.


Macintosh

I use Apple computers and products daily for work and have done so for my entire adult life. I am more than happy to help someone properly learn the skills and tools to get the most out of their computer usage. My knowledge ranges from general settings, to application setup, and tips/tricks for the maximum user-friendly experience. I am a patient and helpful teacher and can't wait to help you master your Apple/Macintosh computer!
