Beginning as a professional drummer, illustrating, digital design, earning an MFA w skills in IT support, still performing in NYC, then culminating my visual and audio skills, I entered my true calling via digital video production, with love and family -- the greatest of hit makers -- enhancing the dynamics of all, unceasingly composing our epic soundtrack... our band plays on...

As a professional, along with video ads, my more unique role has been to create films that inspire the further creation of virtual worlds. In a way, this is the converse of the usual production process, where its members use technical skills to supply a creation. I have used my creativity to supply others' technical skills, very much like making a great film inspires the imagination.

Delivering these films has included culling social media for video sources, memes, journalistic and academic sources. I am thus very comfortable with social media brand best practices hand-in-hand with what constitutes clickable content for a very well pop, competitive sport and high(-er) brow culture-informed audience.

Through visually distinctive editing choices, along with commercial, I present award-winning, independent work to invite conversation and connection with international audiences, having shown in their festivals. Video editing can be invisible and motion design can be ubiquitous. I fervently adhere to subtle technique when it is the best choice, but can easily step out of mainstream conventions.

I had creative visual control of the 1st version of these trailers, following the narration and music already in place, using the capture team including myself to create footage. This was then submitted to the directors, with their revisions ensuing along with team input.
Please contact me for a detailed account of the influence my video work had upon the developers of the environments, design and overall imagery present in this trailer.


I can speak at length concerning the relationship my behind-the-scenes video development had with the imagery of this trailer.

4 min. music video of Space Shuttle footage from official NASA documentaries.
A montage tribute to the defunct NASA Space Shuttle program. Yes, the Space Shuttle program could be viewed as nothing much effectively more than space trucking... versus using space exploration funds to support sexier, more visionary interplanetary space travel. Not quite the self–supporting money maker or the means for advancing "space airline" travel, but important and satellites, telescopes and a space station were launched.

Inadvertently edited like a segment on USA Network's classic weekend video show, Night Flight.

Fellini Gestalt. A feature-length montage of Federico Fellini films. These various clips have been edited together via their common elements from one clip to the next. Hopefully the viewer will gain insight into the motifs, visual and otherwise, which are presented almost obsessively throughout Fellini's oeuvre.

I am also interested in presenting a method of developing a narrative through editing derived purely from the disparate source material itself and not from a preconceived script or structure.
