In my demo reel I have several examples of the type of videos I saw on your site; educational type of animation mixed with sound effects and live action.

I was most recently the AV Technician for the Convention Center for the Stanford School of Medicine where I ran the entire events single handedly for seven year. I gathered up all the materials for the events and kept the show running on time by controling all the elements needed for the talks or symposiums while at the same time keeping the clients calm while some of their speakers ran overtime. Lots of juggling when dealing with super smart folks. It was a pleasure to work there.

I believe my background will be a refreshing combination of technical and creative skills. I have worked in the Television field for many years. I’ve cut, directed, and produced everything from documentaries to medical training videos of new surgical techniques and everything in between; and I do mean everything.
I have worked with the following companies; Apple, Napa Technology, Pottery Barn, Avid, and more.

I work with all forms of media deliverables in all forms of CoDecs; I use AfterEffects, Photoshop, Final Cut Pro, DVDStudioPro, SoundtrackPro, Compressor, Adobe's Media Encoder... You'll see that I taught all of Apple's ProApps for years. I taught FCP, Motion, and DVDStudioPro classes at BAVC in San Francisco [bavc.org], Future Rhythms in Santa Clara [futurerhythm.com] and summer classes at Stanford for the Digital Media Academy.

By trade and training I am an editor / director / producer of video, audio, and multimedia. I started in the broadcast linear editing world (CMX, ADO, GVG ) progressing to non-linear editing in the early 90's; always trying to keep up with evolving technology. Sometimes I feel like I’m just slowing down the rate of which I’m falling behind! I’m sure some of those acronyms may be foreign to you, most are gone now.

I've been in the corporate, news, and entertainment world. I've directed and/or shot live, studio and field productions. I have been active in the Silicon Valley video technologies for over 20 years.
