Three years experience working with an Audio Visual company focused in event production. Contracted creative editing jobs, such as the Naturalization Ceremony at Monticello from 2015 in the above video, require shooting the event and quickly building an engaging video from collected footage in the hours after the event. I've also got experience in repairing less-than-ideal footage, with examples below.

Commercial sound design, music composition

The above video was given to me without audio and, based on the the client's needs, an EDM style track combined with other sound design was composed to synchronize with the visual material.

Shorter samples of sound design for video can be found in the intros to TEDx Charlottesville 2014, 2015, and 2016.

Motion Graphics, misc video and editing projects.

While I haven't been doing a ton of animation these days outside of simple motion graphic experiments and designs for work, I was grossly engaged in learning Flash animation while growing up. Some of my old flash animations, if they weren't taken down for copyrighted music, can be found on an embarrassing middle-school-aged Deviant Art page.

Archival - Personal Film Projects & Experiments (2006 - 2009)

In High School I bought my first video camera - a Panasonic PV-GS19 which recorded to mini DV tapes. I didn't know much about film making other than I loved the creative process of it; especially editing. For me making a movie was - most of the time - grabbing the camera, and shooting things with just a bit of an idea for direction and seeing where it took me, then piecing things together through editing and experimentation and doing what I could to make it comedic.

Any chance I had for a high school project I'd ask to make a short film rather than a powerpoint presentation, such as the two above examples.

More can be found buried within the keyboards and circuit bending videos on my youtube page.
