I have over 25 years experience on both feature and television post-production as well as production, editing action, comedy, drama, games, documentary, instructional, and musicals that often featured cutting edge visual effects, sound design and epic action sequences.
Under any amount of pressure, against any deadline or impossible situation, I am professional, fast, creative, receptive and responsive to collaboration. I am a great storyteller, when there is no story, using the best and most interesting footage photographically, yet still giving the actors performance the first and highest priority is my specialty – on any editing system, starting with film.
Beginning a career at a young age, I was able to learn on the job from many great people such as Tim O’Meara, David Rawlins, Mark Gollblat, John Milius, John Behring, Dennis Hopper, Allen Metter, Frank Jimenez, Chris Crowe, Tony Plana and Danny Bilson to name a few. That knowledge and experience lead to a Television Arts and Science Academy nomination for the Showtime Original Series, “Resurrection Boulevard” in “Outstanding Editing Achievement” in a action/ drama TV series.
Secondly I have a long history in kart racing, first as a driver, and then my passion and dedication to the sport brought me to become more involved in management. Promoting many events from concept and design to conclusion has made this very enjoyable and satisfying. My many years of experience make the often heated environment of racing a pleasure and challenge.
With hard work ethics, I am a team player and expect that from those I come in contact with. I can successfully lead the team or just as successfully be the “go to guy”. Hands on creative thinking make me a great asset to any company looking to improve their overall success and goals.
Upon request, I will provide additional solid references, work history and examples of my work.
