Are you looking for someone to take your show from a simple idea to a reality? I've worked with brands like Disney, YouTube, Sony PlayStation, iHeartMedia and FanDuel doing just that. I can put on shows from a few bullet points of ideas to a full blown yearly tent-pole event. From building show rundowns, production schedules & calendars to managing a budget, I have the skills and the roster to get a project up and running in a matter of a few weeks.
If your team needs someone in a more supporting role, from building run of show formats, production scheduling, floor producing, graphics management, live playback producing and music supervision, these are all positions I have experience in.
If post production is what you need, from offline & online editing and sound mixing sessions, I'm experienced in traditional in-person post production workflow as well as remote workflow using tools like Frame.io and Evercast to edit and get notes and approvals from thousands of miles away.
This is my Demo Reel which features several productions I was lucky enough to produce in my career. I edited this on Adobe Premiere.
Shooting in an amusement park is not easy but shooting in two amusement parks is even harder. In 2016, when our hosts were not able to be in the same place for their Disney Channel Holiday special we used the magic of television to bring them together. Here is the opening music video, "Jolly To The Core" shot on seperate days at Disneyland in Anaheim, CA and the
Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL.
For six years I had the honor of producing the Scientific & Technical Awards (Sci-Tech Awards) ceremony for The Academy (AMPAS). The show celebrates and honors the minds behind some of the best special effects, props and software used in motion pictures. I collaborated with hosts like Margot Robbie & Miles Teller, Olivia Munn & Jason Segel, Leslie Mann & John Cho, Sir Patrick Stewart, David Oyelowo and Simu Liu.
In 2020, at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, many of us in Television & Film were left to "pivot". I was fortunate enough to be able to produce remotely on post production heavy projects like "The Disney Family Singalong Vol 2" and "Dear Class of 2020", where we learned what happens when you take the cast of the popular comedy series, "Schitt's Creek" and music icon, Mariah Carey, and throw them on a video call together.
There's always ways to shoot content, even when your talent is in another country or they're trapped at home. But it's not as easy as turning on your laptop, webcam and trusting the wifi will be good. Steps must be made to insure quality video when producing remotely. I have experience in live and taped remote production including the 2020 Emmy Awards where all of the nominees were Zoom'd live into the broadcast. Here is a clip of one of the nominees that I produced, Jeremy Strong from Succession.
Behind-the-scenes featurettes are one of my favorite bonuses on DVD & Bluray discs. Sometimes the story of how something got made can be even more interesting than the project itself. Here is a quick BTS bumper I produced for "A Christmas Story Live" which aired on FOX.
If you are looking for full-length documentary producing, for the last eight years I have been producing a passion project, The School of Hard Knocks. It's the story of a legendary Professional Wrestling school, whose alumni who have worked in every major organization in the world, and the turmoil that almost tore them apart. Here's a trailer.
