Born in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Graduated from Kalamazoo Central High School. Now I am part of a growing demographic of over educated farmers. Video and film editor since 1992. I have cut 16mm film and used linear tape based systems. I was working as an editor in Boston during the big move to digital nonlinear video editing. In 1998 I formed Primal Digital and moved to NYC. I was working at Showtime Networks as night time tech support for the Media 100 editing suites, but also worked on many other interesting projects while working for Viacom. When I left to work as a freelance video editor in 2000, I immediately got a referral to work on Nickelodeon's latest show, "Dora the Explorer" and worked there for 5 years as Animatic Editor, while running Primal Digital as a studio and event space in DUMBO, Brooklyn, NYC. In 2005 I went to Vermont to get my Masters Degree in Organizational Management. I worked at Arcosanti in Arizona for one year in PR and fund raising and am now living back in Michigan. I teach film making, run events and live sound, run a small farm and am currently starting an earth and art focused ecovillage on my recently acquired 20 acres.
