Hi, my name is Jen. I graduated from American University with a BA in Film and Media Arts. For the past year I worked as a Photographer/ Multimedia Producer for an e-commerce fashion company.

I am knowledgeable in both film theory and practice. My degree not only specialized in production but also the study of film techniques. I am also a skilled film editor. While at American University I tutored students in Final Cut Pro. When tutoring I focused on linear editing, non-linear editing, how to edit in rhythm with music, as well as color correction and sound. I can teach multiple editing techniques. Certain forms of editing are used in different types of film and for different purposes. I am experienced in Final Cut Pro, iMovie, and Adobe After Effects.
