My background is in motion-design, creative direction, and video journalism, and I use my skills to produce documentary, science, museum, and humanitarian stories. I also create sponsored content for visionary brands. I push every production to be an award-winning story (or series) that creates true impact. Previous clients include: PBS, The New York Times, AJ+, CNN, VOA, UNICEF, The American Museum of Natural History, WebMD, US Aid, Penguin Books, Adult Swim, Future of Storytelling (FoST), Showtime, MTV, Time Magazine. Production Equipment: Canon C300 Mark II, Canon C70, Canon C100 MkII, RED Epic, GoPro OMNI 360 cameras for 8K, 4K and HD deliverables. Post-Production Toolset: Illustrator, Photoshop (design, illustration), After Effects, C4D (motion-graphics, animation), Premiere, Final Cut (editing), and VR/360 (stitching, editing, motion-graphics, animation).
