I presently reside in Yaroomba near the town of Coolum Beach on Queensland's Sunshine Coast.
I have been consistently producing all kinds of art work for a good portion of my life. I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and an Art Education Certificate from
The School of The Art Institute of Chicago.
I was born and raised IN the great city of Chicago, but since 1996 I live and work in Australia.
Video editing is my specialty! I have edited DVDs of all kinds including weddings, web advertisements, slide shows for parties and funerals all with custom menus, covers for both the discs and case covers. Besides the DVDs, I have edited numerous music videos for play in all of the nightclubs I have worked in as a VJ/DJ in Chicago during the 80's and 90's at the following clubs:
I continue to edit this "VJ" type of work on a constant basis for play on my YouTube channel.
If you need footage edited, a complete DVD or Blu ray authored, photographs scanned, corrected down to the pixel, a slide show with effects, transitions, logos, titles, from digital files, VHS/C (PAL or NTSC), Hi8mm, 35mm slides or negatives and of course photographs, I can do it with quick turnaround times.
When it comes to sound, I can handle all kinds of digital audio files. I can capture audio from vinyl, cassette, as well as other sources. If you need royalty free audio I can provide that also in a variety of genres or create a custom soundtrack. I create custom soundtracks and background music using Ableton Live 8+Max for live and a variety of VST plugins and a complete library of sounds, sound effects and instruments. My sound work can be heard on-
