Daytona State College
I have a passion for teaching others how to create and be passionate about it. I am a professional freelance editor and graphic designer who has been in the industry for the past 7 years. In that time I have had the chance to work with some of the biggest companies around including The Home Shopping Network, National Geographic, Verizon FIOS, Chevrolet, Ford, Merrill Lynch and more! I work on commercial content, film production, business promotions, and company sizzle reels. I have the right amount of knowledge and experience to teach anyone who is interested in learning the craft of video editing and graphic design whether you're a teenager or a retired adult.
I have worked with many students teaching private lessons and workshops to high schools throughout the state of Florida. My teaching method works by making sure we maximize our time each lesson and after a few classes you will be knowledgeable enough and ready to move on to your own projects. That's the best thing about this field of work, once you learn what to do and what not to do the rest is up to your and your imagination and creativity. I have won multiple awards for film making and use a teaching method that not only teaches you about editing but teaches you the basics of the production industry so that you can hold your own outside of the editors chair.
I hold my teaching and my work up to a very high standard that is never compromised. For that reason I always ask that students and/or parents leave feedback for me and let me know if they feel they learned everything they could because it is my mission to make sure you get as much knowledge as possible from me.
I offer private lessons in my production studio, group lessons, or home lessons where I can travel to you and teach you in your own environment. The only requirement is a Mac or PC computer (desktop or laptop) that has the ability to use Adobe Creative Suite or a Mac that has Final Cut Pro. From there I will teach you everything you need to get started and I even include free graphics, music, and sound effects packages that you can use for your future projects.
I can typically be as flexible with you as possible but to ensure we maximize our time to the fullest I require a 24 hour cancellation notice. I do however offer makeup lessons to ensure you get back on track!
I look forward to speaking with you and getting you on the track of being a professional video editor and graphic designer!

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.
