Undeniable passion for film has governed my life since I was 15 years old when my dad handed me 3 rolls of Tri-X black and white film and my first 35 mm Nikon FM2 camera. I was born into a family of creative minds and raised by my father to spend all of my free time in our darkroom at home and to study the greats of black and white portrait photography like Richard Avedon, Mary Ellen Mark, and Sebastiao Salgado. I carved my niche in documentary filmmaking at a young age with my first film being a window into the world of a socio-political revolutionary movement in Brazil which was single handedly shot and edited by me (see Landless Dreams Trailer on the bottom of the FILM REEL page). Creating this film as my final thesis in the documentary studies program at Santa Fe University of Art and Design which was later featured in festivals and used as curriculum for environmental studies classes at various colleges around the country, ignited my fire for the film industry and has kept my passion alive and thriving ever since.
I have spent the majority of my ten year career in the film industry as a Final Cut Pro and Avid Media Composer Editor. I have worked for a wide range of post production facilities throughout my career ranging from the larger more well polished advertisement driven post houses to tiny non-profit documentary oriented outfits. I am currently working as a freelance editor but I am looking for a more permanent home where my raw talent can be polished and utilized. I aspire to work in a creative environment where I am not only challenged but inspired by like minded people in the industry.
I found my calling as an editor early on in college because I feel that with editing I can become a maestro of emotions and truly transcend the content into a beautiful journey for the audience to embark upon. I am a natural born storyteller and I love providing the world’s unsung heroes with a voice and a platform by which to be heard.
I always start each project with sheer excitement to create the most heartfelt experience for the audience. I also treat every project as an opportunity to grow and gain knowledge, I am forever evolving in this continuously changing industry and never tire of learning and discovering new methods and styles that will bring me to the table with the most current masters of the industry.
Due to my rich background in photography I have also become a great cameraman. I shoot full HD video and stills that will meet all of your photographic needs. Baby Blue Film is my San Francisco based production company which features my personal editing suite operating with Final Cut Pro 7, Motion, Compressor, Photoshop, and Illustrator.
