NAZ Today - Videographer / Technical Director

Flagstaff, AZ, United States

Aug 2009 - Jun 2010 All of the work at NAZ Today was done under the strict deadlines of a daily television news broadcast.  

Occasionally the production team had a couple days to work on a story (usually if it was a long package or ongoing story), but most stories had to be done in one day.


I would be sent out in the morning to cover a story, return a couple hours later with the footage, write up the story and lead in for the anchors, create any required voiceovers and cut it in Final Cut Pro.  Then I would participate in the live broadcast, usually as floor director or technical director.

Seeking a position in a company that will make great use of my multitude of production and post production skills.

If you have a production team where one person goes from inception of idea to shooting to editing, then this would be a good fit for both of us.  

broadcast news, production or post-production facility, or commercial production company are ideal matches for me

Head Cinematographer / Director / Editor

Vegas 1404

I became head videographer, director, editor and screenwriter for a sketch comedy group in Las Vegas called Sketchofrenics, and assisted with their startup phase while they were transitioning from a theater group to the video production company Vegas 1404.

  • Wrote, Directed and Edited the most popular of all of the Vegas 1404 videos "Hiring Pundits", which has a 96% rating of "Funny" on
  • Coached Vegas 1404 by providing instruction on how to produce video segments, including being part of the Official Selection of the Las Vegas 48 Hour Film Festival (film called "Chasing Romance" which I directed but DID NOT get final cut because the producers wanted to feature all +30 extras that each had each been given one line in the script. This was a great detriment to the pacing of the final movie.)
  • Co-Shot and Edited improvised interactions of characters from Sketchofrenics shows with real-world people, including the characters "Tiffany and Brittany... The 80's Chicks" and "Mamma Leanne and Little Sami"
  • Started and taught successful Improvisation Class to help Vegas 1404 find new talent
