Motion Design + Editing + Consulting
Accepting freelance work on a limited basis only.
Originally from Pennsylvania, I graduated from Susquehanna University with a B.S. in Computer Science in 2004 and moved to the Washington, DC metro area shortly thereafter to pursue film and media. I completed my M.A. in Film & Video at American University in 2007. My thesis film, The Bronze Door, is an award-winning 20-minute dramatic narrative adapted from a Raymond Chandler short story.
Focusing on post-production at AU, as well as cinematography, I have produced, shot, and edited promotional videos, employee messaging pieces, trailers, podcasts, and short-form projects for private, government, academic and nonprofit clients. Working as a contract Producer for the United States Postal Service headquarters in Washington, DC. I developed and produced several projects, including the USPS Year in Review, a movie-like trailer for the Flats Sequencing System, a promotional spot for the Priority Mail Flat-Rate Box, and the “I” in Shipping internal messaging campaign.
As the Project Director for VideoTakes, Inc. in Arlington, VA, I worked closely with various non-profits to produce, edit, and design graphics for promotional and marketing pieces. Clients included the World Resources Institute, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, U.S. Army Reserve, and Nature’s Best Photography.
Currently, I produce, edit, and design content as the Senior Specialist, Video Production at the American College of Cardiology in Washington, DC. In my continued work as a sole proprietor, I have recently completed a number of projects and fostered relationships with the SAIC Integrated Communications, The Media Project and Philosophy IB.
In my spare time, you might find me hanging out with my awesome wife Katie, listening to movie soundtracks and 80s pop music, playing golf, taking pictures, and continuing to help out Boy Scout Troop 72.
