Thanks for considering me as your tutor for TV and video production. I've been in the TV industry for over a decade as a producer, director, editor, writer, and cinematographer, and my work has appeared on most major networks, including NBC, ABC, CBS, ESPN, HBO, Showtime, NFL Network, NBC Sports Network, TruTV and Versus.
I've worked in the Philly area since 2005 with companies like NFL Films, Comcast, NBC Sports, and Drexel University, and have been lucky enough to earned several awards for my work, including two national Emmy's Awards.
My specific areas of expertise include:
Pre-production and location scouting, Cinematography with HD video cameras and DSLR cameras, Basic lighting for shoots and interviews, Techniques for TV interviews, Video Editing - Final Cut Pro and AVID software, Music selection and editing and Video compression - DVD/Blu Ray authoring and exporting for the web.
My philosophy on video production, both as a teacher and as a producer, is to first and foremost tell a compelling story. It doesn't matter if the content matter is sports, family tragedy, pawn shops, or duck hunters, if you can tell a compelling story you are golden. I love what I do, and as a tutor I get to help other people learn the tools and tricks of the trade to produce videos that your audience will love, whether it's family and friends or TV network executives. You've got an idea for a video, and I can help you make it a reality.
I'm excited for the chance to work with new people who are interested in video production, and hopefully we can team up, learn a few things, and have some serious fun!
Please don't hesitate to contact me with any further questions or to set up a meeting.

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.
I have spent 8 years producing films and tv shows that have aired on networks like NBC, ABC, CBS, HBO, Showtime, ESPN, NBC Sports Network, NFL Network. I've produced everything from feature-length documentary films to web series and short commercial promos. In addition to working with large networks, I also served as the head of video production for Drexel University Athletics, where I oversaw a staff of several undergraduate students, guiding them through all phases of the production process, including pre-production, lighting, shooting, directing, writing, editing, and post-production. My work so far has earned several Emmy nominations, two national Emmy wins, and 7 Telly Awards.
For nearly a decade, I've continued to hone my craft as a video producer, working on a wide range of projects like documentary films, TV shows, web series, network promos and commercials, corporate videos, and other personalized projects. My work has appeared on NBC, ABC, CBS, HBO, Showtime, ESPN, NBC Sports Network, NFL Network, TruTV, and many other outlets. One of my favorite parts of every job I've had has been mentoring others looking to learn more about production, whether it's interns looking to get their start, the undergrads I mentored at Drexel Athletics, or helping other producers in any way possible. I know from personal experience that getting personal help from colleagues in the business is a better way to learn and advance than any amount of book reading or Google searching can achieve. I look forward to meeting some fun new friends as a tutor of the entire video production process, including pre-production, lighting, shooting, directing, writing, editing, and post-production.
