Born and mostly raised in Southern California. Though I did live in Ohio for several of my younger years.
I started my life in the film and TV stuff when I got my first camera which was a hand me down VHS C video camera that could shoot 1/4 of a second so made several stop motion videos with it. Some a tribute to, The Monkies, some toys I had laying around, and on cartoon my friend and animated. And my editing started with tape to tape editing from camera to VHS. You could only imagine my joy when I discovered non liner editing in college!
I currently edit with Final Cut Pro 7. I also do my stop motion videos with FramebyFrame and Time Lapse videos with Quicktime Pro 7 and After Effects. I have experience with Adobe Premiere and Avid as well.
