Objective

I have always enjoyed working in a collaborative environment, especially in jobs that allow me to be creative.

If you're a company that is doing something creative and interesting in video and/or web, perhaps we can work together.  

Get in touch with me!

Summary

I love to create. Whether it is in music, writing, video, websites or a simple slideshow - I love to create. I also love helping others create something that they love, using tools that they may not be able to use (yet!)
