    For the past 8 years I have weaved my way through the creative industries, developing projects and working from the bottom to create what I feel is an outstanding collection of experiences and skills. In my most recent years I have had the great pleasure of being a member of an extraordinary Emmy Award Winning team at Spectrum in Tampa, FL. During my time there I was able to work with some of the most talented people for top tier clientele and networks. I am fluent in the digital landscape and consider myself a Creative Developer and a PRO video editor. But I don't limit myself to just editing. I am able to take on all kinds of projects no matter what scale. I work with a great network of contractors and freelancers to get any job done. The world of video is so important. Each creative endeavor is personal to me because I believe video has real power. Whether you are a startup company trying to brand yourself or a mother trying to make a lasting memory; video has the ability to make an impact on all levels.The emotion that a perfect edit can evoke is profound. I am in love with the idea that I have the ability to give someone goosebumps, make someone smile, cry, laugh and be entertained.
