I am a video editor and motion graphics designer (and occasional director and camera operator!). I moved to Portland in March of 2011 from the UK, after spending the last several years working as a video editor for Travel Channel International - initially as a member of their regular post production facility, before being asked to join the channel as a staff member. After a few months of waiting for my Green Card, I restarted my career here in Portland.
Since moving to Portland, I have worked as a freelancer for a variety of companies including:
Nike - Intel - IFC - Ann Taylor Loft - Regence Healthcare - Adobe – FLIR – SOREL - Aryzta - Otis Spunkmeyer - OnPoint - Women's Tennis Association - Mary Kay - Ron Tonkin - DeMarini - R/West - Borders Perrin Norrander - Visual Aid, Inc. - Vignette Brand Communications - Food Chain Films - @Large Films - This Meets That Films
My work has run the gamut from commercials, branded short documentaries, internal training content, music videos, live events, television shows and more.
The years spent working with Travel Channel involved many different aspects of the post-production process; editing promo material, offline and online edits of half hour and hour long shows (In-House and co-productions, as well as acquisitions), designing graphics, color grading, creating advertisements for sponsorship/branding deals in partnership with the Advertising & Marketing Department, working with the New Media department to create online content for the website and the On Demand service, as well as acting as quality control for all material going to air.
I worked with the Head of Operations to help develop and coordinate the transition to a tapeless server-based editing environment, as well as the switch from Standard Definition to High Definition broadcast, by assisting in the creation of new workflow standards, protocols and best practices, and then worked with the production, acquisition and scheduling departments to ensure these were quickly and efficiently implemented.
My time there ingrained me with an incredibly strong work ethic, attention to detail, and fostered a true sense of personal responsibility and dedication to the task at hand. I think these qualities as well as my years of experience help to make me an ideal candidate to tackle your project.
