This is an example of my editing and some (admittedly unpolished) scoring. Enjoy!

What Is Possible in 48 Hours

One saving grace of being in a fast paced work environment is that you get comfortable doing things on tight deadlines. I re-manufactured this video from scratch in about 48 hours… With enough coffee, all things are possible.


This commercial I produced for the company I currently work for. Excluding the camerawork, I was solely responsible for executing this project. I did the editing, music, motion graphics, lower thirds, end screen, cleaning up and mastering the audio, and even VFX — There was a sconce on the wall behind the speaker, who also had a pimple on his forehead. Both of which I removed with some creative masking and compositing. Here is a still frame from the Original footage.

Storytelling through imagery

I cut this collection of stock footage together as a visual representation of the arrangement of the National Anthem I wrote. I’ve included it here so you can get a sense of my pacing, tempo, and instincts for clip placement.
