If you have editing projects, I can help. I've got 10 years of experience and my own editing system at home in Nashville so I can offer competitive rates. Whether you're based in Nashville or anywhere in the country, I can help you out. I've done several projects for production companies based in different parts of the country. Just ship me the footage and give me direction and I can make it happen.

I have excelled in the fast paced world of Live TV, and the highly creative world of post production editing and producing for some of the biggest names in Entertainment and Live Broadcast today, including World Wrestling Entertainment (featuring basic cable's #1 rated show in primetime: WWE Raw, and the CW network's highest rated show WWE Smackdown), and QVC (24/7 Live broadcast from the worlds largest broadcast studio).

I have also Produced documentary programming for The History Channel, GSN, and The Discovery Channel. I currently work for TNA Wrestling, where I Edit and Produce for one of Spike TV's top rated shows, TNA Impact. I am a highly skilled, highly reliable, self motivated employee who is always looking for a challenge.
