I'm a freelance professional videographer and editor with over 10 years of experience using my own production and post-production gear. The kinds of productions I've worked on cover a broad range: mostly corporate, a lot of non-profit, some broadcast and a number of independent documentaries and narrative films. A good example of recent documentary work is a retrospective on the visual artist Lynda Benglis who really challenged the art world in the 60's and 70's and even today. I'm drawn to such work that can be both entertaining and edifying. I've been fortunate enough that the few broadcast pieces I've worked on have also had both of those qualities. I edited a couple of TV documentary shorts for The Visionaries series in 2003 (just before they sharply curtailed their production) and shot and edited six episodes of Idyll Banter with Chris Bohjalian, a series based on Bohjalian's newspaper column of the same name. It was light human interest fare that aired on the Hallmark Channel in 2006-2007. I come from an arts background, so the interest in the arts and humanities is a natural fit for me. More recently, I have shot and/or edited some local cable commercial spots.
On the corporate video side, I have worked on productions for companies like Genzyme, Covidien and Haemonetics, but also for non-profit organizations like City Year, Episcopal Divinity School, Atrius Health and Northeast Public Power Association. The task that I'm given over and over again in these types of projects is to capture as authentically as possible the experience and the thoughts of an employee, a patient, a user of a product, a person seeking training, a person seeking change.
