About Joel

I'm a freelance video editor, writer, and storyteller with a deep, rich history working across a range of digital mediums. I pride myself on my versatility and creativity, as well as my dedication to create long-term, repeat clients whenever possible. As a result of these traits, I have a well-established positive relationship online (Top-Rated Freelancer on Upwork with a 100% job success score) with a high percentage of return clients. As an editor, I specialize in the Adobe Creative Cloud. I use Premiere, After Effects, Photoshop, Audition, Lightroom, and Media Encoder on a daily basis. I'm also proficient in some of the other suite offerings like Illustrator and Speedgrade. I've worked with YouTube brands ranging from ones just starting out to those in the millions of subscribers. I've built channels from the ground up and enjoyed being a part of ones that are launched into stellar growth. I've edited content that went on to air on national television, all from the comfort of my well-worn office chair. Over the years I've also developed a deep understanding of SEO and best practices (especially for YouTube and Wordpress content). I also worked as a writer for an international Content Production Agency, through which I created for gigantic brands like Nintendo, AllState Insurance, and more. I hold my undergraduate degree in creative writing, so I've been known to get in on the ground-level with scripting to help punch up content when the need arises. In short, I'm a no-nonsense creative-type with an established reputation who’s constantly taking on new challenges and would love to talk with you about your project(s). I hope to hear from you soon!
