I began editing videos roughly 23 years ago, back when my tools consisted of 2 VCR's, a VHS camcorder, and a stereo - all connected to one another. Today, I work with Adobe Creative Cloud on Mac OS X. Video editing is one of my greatest passions. It's also one of the more underrated magical elements to filmmaking. A good editor can create humor, suspense, terror, joy, etc. simply by understanding the importance of timing. I'm available for virtually any project type, I am also available as a tutor.
I was previously the lead vocalist of a psychedelic surf rock band, a rock band, and a 20-piece jazz ensemble. Today, I no longer perform, but I am available for session vocals. Most recently, I've recorded for Secret Chiefs 3 and the Shawn Wilcox band. I also record for local, underground artists. My genres include (but are not limited to): jazz, casual operatics, rock, blues, experimental, and swing. I am also available to record background harmonies.
Running on the platform of suicide prevention, I create comedic home video style content. I have late stage chronic Lyme Disease. The #1 cause of death among those who suffer from Lyme is suicide. My videos are an attempt to show others that it is possible to defy the odds and enjoy life, no matter how tough the challenges life throws our way. I am weird, open, accepting of my own mortality, adventurous, and inviting. Hoping others will learn to let go and simply be who they are without fear.
PHOTOGRAHY & DIGITAL DESIGN:
Hugely inspired by Eugenio Recuenco's photography, but carrying a unique style of vision for cinematic emotion and contrast in the mundane.
