Summary

I have just relocated back to the East Bay after working and living on a Cruise Vessel, and I am continuing with my camera and editing carrier.

A year and a half ago, Princess Cruises offered me a unique opportunity to shoot and edit video while traveling on-board their ships. Filming everyday in exclusive areas of the world was an amazing experience that strengthened, diversified, and supplemented my creative pallet.  Before leaving Princess Cruises, I was requested to produce a documentary and commercials that promoted the Mexican Riviera for Princess’s marketing department, Internet and on-board sales.I have obtained a Bachelors degree in motion pictures and film from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco with an emphasis dedicated to cinematography.  I have experience working with 35mm, 16mm, 8mm, SD, and HD video cameras. In addition to camera work, I have expertise with the lighting of sets and exteriors by local power and generator.  My editing background started with tape-tape and Video Toaster and advanced with the non-linier evolution, platforms in my repertoire include Casablanca, Adobe Premier, Media 100, and my current proficiency with the Final Cut Pro platform.
