Favorite Movie: Network
I’m a recent arrival to Seattle and loving it! I came here to work as the Print Traffic Coordinator for the TWIST film festival in 2016 and, since then, I have been working as a freelance camera person and video editor.
I’m a graduate of the MFA Film Production / Directing program at UCLA (1999-2004) and worked in LA’s film community from 2004 – 2016. I have produced and edited video segments for The Oscars, The Grammys and The Tonys in addition to serving as the lead cinematographer for the Emmy Award-winning documentary, VITO about the legendary queer film historian and AIDS activist Vito Russo. It screened at the New York Film Festival and was broadcast on HBO. I also worked for Deluxe/Technicolor’s Digital Cinema department from 2009-2016 and helped launch their 3D subtitling and image enhancement departments. During my time there, I assisted with the worldwide release of hundreds of features from every major studio from Avatar to Star Wars Episode VII. I’m a one man band when it comes to producing focused, ongoing social media and online campaigns. I specialize in online video content and own a production package that includes camera, lighting and sound equipment that I can use at a moment’s notice along with years of writing, directing, editing and producing experience. I also produce my own comic book series and I have a deep knowledge of online promotion using social media platforms, WordPress, Illustrator and Photoshop. One of my favorite jobs in the last few years was writing, directing, editing and producing the trailers for Seattle’s Lesbian & Gay Film Festival (now TWIST) in 2007 and 2012.
