San Francisco State (Cinema Production)
I'm a creative producer and dynamic designer with a over a decade of experience working on commercials, shorts, narrative features, and large scale commercial video products. I am meticulous, self-driven and love solving problems and sharing those solutions with others. I currently split my time between scaling complex post-production workflows, coordinating creative teams, and highly detailed but fun side projects.
I've instructed individuals as well as larger teams on everything from media management best practices to best how to integrate new professional application into video workflows.
When working with students I find a hands on visual approach to learning is the best as apposed to prescribing a specific curriculum. I first try to get an idea of what a student is attempting to learn or having trouble with and start with a broad overview of the problem space and get more specific as time goes on or if a student has a specific question I can go into more detail. I cater my teaching approach to the individual because everyone starts at a different level.
I have expertise in post-production workflows, particularly different Adobe products work together and how best to set things up in order avoid problems down the road.
