Skills

Skills

Writing/proofreading

I have a strange knack for looking at documents and picking out spelling errors and grammatical and syntax problems.

Adobe Photoshop

Panasonic AG-DVX100

This camera is a wonderful piece of equipment that has been a joy to learn to use. I enjoy having the choice of shooting in 29.97 fps or 24 fps depending on my clients' request. Being a one man show, I can carry a majority of my equipment in one load due to the portability of this camera.

Adobe After Effects

I began using After Effects while I was a production assistant at FOX 26. Due to the editing constraints presented by the Media 100 program that was available to my department at the time, I found After Effects to be an extremely important piece of software to take my video production pieces further.

Final Cut Pro

I trained myself in Final Cut Pro and continue to learn with it every day. I have found Final Cut Pro to be a wonderful editing tool that is easy to learn and user friendly for both professionals and amateurs alike.
