I'm a self-directed editor that can work on my own or follow directions of Producers, Directors and writers, I work both ways.
I own my own video editing system and currently edit for another company using my own equipment/software.
I have been given a lot of footage to work with and at times very little to work with and have always come back with more than the client expected and satisfied them beyond what they had hoped for. I have the ability to edit in most any style, so don't let my decades of experience give you the impression that I'm an "old dog" and can't edit video in today's style endemic with high-octane sports videos which I find exhilarating to watch and enjoy.
Thanks for considering my qualifications.
