Las Vegas, Nevada - United States

I am an experienced Editor/Videographer/Designer with detailed organization skills in managing video and multimedia content for DVD/Blu-ray and the Internet. My focus is on creative storytelling and a strong belief in sharing my talents supporting local community events. I know the tools of the trade both behind and in front of the camera. Whether it's long form, short form, trailers, promos, music videos, episodic, commercial, or narrative, I use the Art of Editing to convey a message.

I desire to join a fun creative team of media professionals as a full-time Editor, and I welcome any opportunity for the chance to apply my skills.
