Videographer, Editor, Audio Engineer

Wandering Media

Since 2009, I have been working as a freelance videographer, editor, and audio engineer through my company Wandering Media.  I have created online web videos for the Toronto Financial Services Association, Center of Excellence (TFSA), Doctor Chesnie Cooper, Psychiatrist, training videos and interviews with speakers for Certified Management Accountants of Ontario, videotaping and editing of conferences for CMA Ontario, Scholarlab, among others. I also have directed and edited music videos for many local musicians and artists, as well as live events and parties in and around Toronto.  I have been told that I can put people at ease when they are being videotaped.  I can also edit footage in order to tell a meaningful story under tight deadlines.

I have technical expertise in digital video and audio - recording, handling, editing, duplicating, and posting using industry standard video and audio editing software and techniques (Final Cut Suite, Adobe Suite, Pro Tools) and as a musician I also produce appropriate background music to accompany the video.  I have written music for many video projects, both my own and for other filmmakers.  Some of my videos are featured on the following link:  www.vimeo.com/wanderingmedia

I was also the sound design/engineer and mixer for an award winning documentary called “The Hollow Tree” which was featured on The Knowledge Network in Vancouver this summer (http://knowledge.ca/program/the-hollow-tree).

As principal of my own media company.  I have promoted my company, prepared proposals for videography projects, prepared quotations for my services, worked with the clients to develop a product that meets the needs of the organization and ensure that each project is something the customer is proud to display on their website.  I use my creativity and problem-solving skills meet the needs of clients and to ensure that my projects are delivered on plan and on budget.
