Currently employed at Radar Studios in Chicago, IL. I work closely with advertising agencies, such as Leo Burnett, to create visual effects for national and global commercials. Foundry’s Nuke, Autodesk Flame, Adobe After Effects and Final Cut Pro are programs I regularly use for visual effects and editorial.
In 2012-2013 I helped executive producer, John Montgomery, pitch the show The Crazy Ones – CBS. I created and maintained a blog for the Emmy winning show writer and creator David E. Kelly. Out of this became the foundation for the show The Crazy Ones starring Robin Williams.
From 2004 to 2008, I worked at Discovery World in Milwaukee, WI as Senior Videographer. I created the exhibit videos, documentaries and motion graphics for the Museum. Discovery World’s video content has a strong focus in science while remaining highly creative. My filming experience at Discovery World took place anywhere from underwater, to the studio, aboard a sailing vessel, and various other locations. In 2006, I supervised the construction of the museum’s HD virtual production studio, including the layout design and equipment purchasing.
Through my experience in video production, I’ve learned how valuable a visual piece can be in transmitting a client’s idea or teaching the public something new about the natural world in a fun, creative way.
