As a documentary and commercial filmmaker, I have always enjoyed sharing my skills with others and helping them express their love of film and video. While still in college, I worked as a teacher's assistant and found out how much fun it is to work with emerging talents and help them reach their goals.

As a tutor, I believe in letting my students be hands on. My students will actually do the work and learn to connect the dots themselves. While I do teach HOW specific software programs work, my focus is more about understanding WHAT you can accomplish. Fundamentals are key when it comes to cinematography and editing and I work closely with students to help them understand the rules of production so they can accomplish consistent results.

I specialize in independent filmmaking: Cinematography, Lighting, Editing, Color. I am easy to work with, creative, and flexible.

I look forward to working with you.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Film

I am a documentary filmmaker and have been working in video and film production professionally since 2006. I have produced, directed, and shot a number of short documentary films and am currently finishing a feature length documentary film (Citizens*). I have also served as a cinematographer, editor, and associate producer on another feature length documentary film.

Graphic Design

I am an award winning designer (Best Wine Label, 2003) and I have an AA in Graphic Design. I spent close to a decade designing logos, newsletters, etc. for corporations. I also spent 6 months as a teachers assistant instructing students on how to use Photoshop, Illustrator, and Quark.

Video Production

I have worked in video production professionally since 2006. Along with documentary films, I create commercial videos for a variety of clients. I have created commercial videos and animations for Sanyo, The Travel Channel, and Life Technologies.
