I Love What I Do

I think we can all agree: Making stuff look good is darn hard work.

Fortunately for you and me though, “making stuff look good” just happens to be exactly what I love to do. When I work with you on a project, you can be guaranteed that I’ll bring my trademark enthusiasm to the table every day.

I’m passionate and I’m eager to make your videos look awesome, and that attitude alone will be a fantastic boon to you and your team’s post-process.

A Crazy Good Eye

Two, if we’re getting technical.

When going into the finishing stages of your project (color correction and online editing), you need a guy with impecable attention to detail so things don’t get majorly screwed up in the final stretch.

With my experience as a colorist in a commercial post-production house, you can rest-assured that I’ll be keeping a constant watch over every file, every pixel of your project to ensure that things sail smoothly.

I’ve Got Chops

I’ve worked with many video applications on a professional level, including:

  • DaVinci Resolve
  • Final Cut Pro 7
  • Avid Media Composer
  • Adobe Premiere Pro CS6
  • Adobe After Effects CS6
  • Autodesk Smoke


With a varied skill-set and a carefully tuned talent for understanding what a client is imagining an image will look like, and then delivering on that image, I have the technical and creative qualifications to meet nearly any request thrown at me. 

It’s Like Magic!

Okay – maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration. But, I can guarantee that once you see your finished, color corrected product, you’ll swear that it WAS magic. It’s easy to let something like a proper, professional finish of your project fall through the cracks, but trust me – you want a video wizard’s hands to cast lusture incantations upon your finished product to give it that last, lasting edge.

What I’m saying is: I’d like to be your wizard.
