I am an Independent Filmmaker/ Editor originally from New Hampshire, come down to the big apple to see what's what.
While still up in New England, I was very active in the Boston film community, having worked on various small indie film productions in many capacities, as well as having been involved in the Boston Underground Film Festival, the Independent Film Festival of Boston, and Local Sightings run by David Kleiler.
My real strengths are in post production, specifically editing and sound design, having worked on many projects in that capacity. I am well versed in using all of the major editing software platforms, from various incarnations of AVID, to FCP, Adobe Premiere, media 100- I have even cut actual synch film on a moviola flatbed. At present the system I run at home is Adobe Creative Suite CS5, Production Premium, which comes with not only Premiere, but Encore, Media Encoder, After Effects, and Photoshop, etc.
My Short film Sweetie, screened at ten film festivals in 2008-09, and was picked up for distribution by Ouat! media in Canada after its festival run.
In 2009-2010, I wrote and produced my first feature length film, titled Whatever Makes You Happy. The film played in competition at five festivals in 2011, most notably the Treasure Coast International Film Festival, where Whatever Makes You Happy was awarded best feature film. Whatever Makes You Happy is being distributed by Echelon Studios in California.
Along with these produced works, I also have written three feature length screenplays. And am always working on a new one.
