As a professional video editor, my reputation depends on my thorough and complete understanding of the tools of the trade. Proficient in Final Cut Studio 3 (Final Cut Pro 7, Motion 4, Compressor 3, DVD Studio 4) and Avid Media Composer, I know what info to share with students and the benefits of working with the applications. But it's more than that. Knowing the tools is one thing, knowing when and why to use them is quite another. I can share this professional insight with students to make them not only run the tools better, but to be a better editor in general.
I have had a long history of one-on-one training sessions with clients and keep a keen eye out for their retention. Always willing to go the extra mile, I can give students the attention and direction they need.
Beginning in grade school, and being mentored by my father, Photography has always been a passion of mine through life. Many awards in high school and college, and a continued pursuit of photography since has made me understand the art and science. Shooting digital since 2000, I know the process end to end, and always sharing my knowledge with those willing to listen.
As a video professional, I have worked primarily as an editor. My experience dates back long before the technology made it "easy". From 1978 through 1998, most of my work was for professional video post production houses in Chicago. For 12 years I edited at IPA, The Editing House, and another 3 years at The Film & Tape Works. During all this time, I also shot and directed a variety of freelance projects. I have been a freelance editor/videographer for many Fortune 500 companies. Since 1998 I have been freelancing as well as running my own boutique production company.
Over the years I have provided a number of clients one-on-one instruction in Final Cut Pro, DVD Studio Pro, Motion, and Avid. A number of clients return to me to guide them through the confusing and complicated software.
