       Currently seeking a position as AVID/FCP Editor or Post Producer or Pro Tools Post-
Production Audio Editor/Mixer or Post-Production Supervisor/Coordinator.

Qualifications and Experience
       For more than 13 years, I was responsible for the finishing and delivery of hundreds of
hours of long form, primetime network and cable television programming. My duties have
encompassed performing and/or supervising many aspects of post-production including:

      Creation and compositing of graphic and text elements from title to credits
      Music composition/editing, dialogue, efx and voice-over recording/editing
      Final audio mix and layback
      Final formatting, color correction and quality control
      Re-purposing of programming for foreign and home video markets
      Management and archival of film and tape elements

        I can operate and maintain many types of audio and video tape machines and
camcorders, both analog and digital. I have received certified Chyron training. I am adept at the
use of Grass Valley Group equipment and Editware editing software. I have a working
knowledge of non-linear editing systems such as Avid Media Composer, Final Cut Pro and
Adobe Premiere. As an accredited Pro Tools operator, I have created mixes for broadcast and
home entertainment programs, some employing a 5.1 surround matrix. I'm familiar with
broadcast technical specifications, as well as general formatting and delivery requirements.
Also, I have accrued an empirical technical understanding of editing systems, signal routing and
recording technology, having played a key role in the design, installation and implementation of
the studios and hardware systems that I’ve utilized.

        My previous employer was an independent film and television production company that
required me to fill the most pivotal position in the post-production process. I’ve worked on
hundreds of hours of programming of nearly every kind, from multi-hour network specials and
series to concise presentations, promotional reels, press kits and commercials. In many cases, I
supervised the entire final program assembly process, working closely with the editors and
mixers to ensure that all notes and revisions were addressed before screenings with the
producers. As the last link in the chain of production, I was ultimately responsible for the content
and quality control of the video and audio components of all of this programming, most of it
proceeding directly from me to air.

       I believe that my broad and varied experience in broadcast post-production has provided
me with the qualifications and expertise to help execute the realization of nearly any type of
programming project from concept to delivery. I invite you to visit my website to review more of
my credits and examples of some of my work.
