ABOUT

Since 2008, I’ve been at Radar Studios in Chicago, IL. I work closely with advertising agencies, such as Leo Burnett, to create effects heavy creative content for national and global commercials. I’m an on-set VFX Supervisor, helping direct the VFX needs and collect the required data for an efficient post production process. The Foundry’s Nuke/Nuke Studio are my tools of choice for compositing and for a fast streamlined production workflow. I also create content using the full Adobe Creative Cloud and Final Cut Pro.

In 2012-2018, I managed digital content for executive producer John Montgomery to help pitch the show The Crazy Ones – CBS. Using a CMS, I created and managed 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. I continued on to create and manage the Montgomery Studios website.

From 2004 to 2008, I worked at Discovery World in Milwaukee, WI as Senior Videographer and Technical Advisor. 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, in the studio, to on board a sailing vessel. I had the pleasure to interview icons such as Les Paul and Bob Ballard. In 2006, I supervised the construction of the museum’s creative content production studio, including the layout design and equipment purchasing.

Through my experience in creative media 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.
