I have been a Senior Video and Motion Graphics Editor for a local post house in Metairie, Louisiana for four years. I later became a Digital Media Designer for an advertising agency in Gretna, Louisiana. Presently a Video/Motion Graphics Editor for a post house in Baton Rouge.

Some of my highlighted work under LAE Productions include, assisting in both the production and post of the PBS documentary, Fats Domino: Walkin' Back To New Orleans

Senior Editor for the weekly magazine styled show, A. R. Bernard. This is a religious based show shot in New York hosted by prominent New York pastor A. R. Bernard.

Senior Editor for Tiger Tacks, a monthly LSU Sports show for Cox Sports. In charge of the editing and graphic look of the program.

I was in charge of of the look, editing and creation of a 2 disc DVD for Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, A Life That Matters.

I have edited projects for numerous corporations including: Visa, Volunteers of America, L'Oreal and The Learning Companies.

When needed, I assist with production shoots whether in studio or out in the field. Before my position as a Senior Editor, I was a Promotions Supervisor for a Fox affiliate.

I have over seven years experience in editing using Final Cut Studio (presently Final Cut Studio 2) and seven years experience in television production in both field and studio. For over two years, I have been editing with Autodesk Smoke 2015. Not only am I an editor and television production technician, but a team player in the overall goal for the final product.

I have a passion for the television industry whether it is through the editing process with a client, the studying of latest techniques, or simply sharing my knowledge of what I have learned to my co-workers and clients. It is the collaborative, team involvement that makes post production a fun experience not a job.
