I have a vast knowledge of Avid Media Composer, Premier Pro CC, and Adobe Creative Suite including; Photoshop and Illustrator and After Effects. I work on both PC and Mac based computers. As a professional in the video field, I have excellent organizational, and communication skills, which is vital for producing high-level, projects for highly satisfied clients.

I am able to handle the project from start to finish, delivering the client their program needs for distribution, with the various mediums needed in today’s market.

I am able to stand for long periods of time at events and sit for long periods of time editing and creating graphics. I physically have no problem lifting the weight, or being outside. I have no issues working in tight spaces, if the shot needs to be shot, I will shoot it. If the scene needs to be edited, I have no issues getting the best-finished product possible. If graphics need creating, I am fully able.

I have had a busy spring, editing on Avid Media Composer, 26-30 minute high-quality episodes of an animated children’s show, released on PBS. I also have shot and finished on Premiere Pro CC multiple professional programs for the Detroit Opera Theater and Comet Interactive.

These shows were handled from beginning to end, which involved moving and setting up the equipment, standing and taping the 3 hour, mult-camera operas and editing the shows with full graphics for presentations.

I am continuously improving myself and learning. Recently, instructors from both Walsh College and Macomb Community College have given me the highest ratings, with writing ability, work ethic, and creativity. I graduated top of my class from Ferris State University. I am dedicated, work hard, and have an excellent work ethic. I don’t stop till the job is finished to the best of its ability.

I am both highly creative in the arts and have a technical brain. I have excellent communication skills, and enjoy working on a team, helping others, and fully able to work on my own.

I started playing cello in 1997, after playing the violin for 3 years. I was in the Detroit youth orchestra and attended Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp. I played in College, at Ferris and MTU on a partial scholarship. I played in Livonia Community Orchestra and Lapeer Community Orchestra. My son plays the violin and sits first chair. My professional job is a video editor, which uses rhythm and timing. I substitute teach when I am not editing.


I have a degree in Television Production for Ferris. I graduated at the top of my class. I work weekends as a photographer/videographer.
