Video Editor

-Developed many skills and worked my way up from an assistant to an official editor position.

-Collaborate directly with clients on their vision, while at the same time offering my creative input to help them get to where they want to be. Have ability to work with others, or unsupervised. Establishing good relationships with the people I work with is a priority for me.

-Tasks range from editing full videos to making complimentary graphics for other editors’ projects, recording voice-overs, DVD authoring, or posting videos to the web. I would often cut A-roll in advance for my colleagues for their edits, as being a team player is in my nature.

-Create mostly short-form corporate/documentary video, though many different styles of video have been edited over the years. Many of our videos play at conventions, while most projects have destinations that end up on DVD or are tailored to fit the client’s web specifications.
EducationSouthern Illinois University - Carbondale 2002-2006

Earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Cinema & Photography. My senior project was a 27-minute digital documentary created from scratch. I was trained on Final Cut Studio. I also studied film theory and screenwriting, and have a vast knowledge of film history and technique.
SpecialityVideo editor with seven years of experience who is highly proficient in Final Cut Pro 7 and other programs including Adobe Photoshop, Adobe After Effects, Adobe Illustrator, DVD Studio Pro and Compressor, among others.

I pride myself on being a caring, professional editor with the job at-hand being the number one priority, but I like to keep things loose and fun for sake of the client’s comfort. Nobody likes an awkward edit.

I am seeking to further my career as a video editor and branch out to new clients and opportunities. I am passionate about editing, and would love to continue developing my skills and my creativity.
Software ProficiencyProficient in Final Cut Pro 7, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe After Effects, Adobe Illustrator, DVD Studio Pro, Compressor, and several other compression programs. Workable-to-intermediate skills in Cinema 4D, Dreamweaver, Encore, Motion, and Soundtrack Pro. I’m in the beginning stages of learning Adobe Premier, as well. There are many other smaller programs I use, and am more than willing to educate myself on any new programs I would need to learn.
