Hey, thank you for considering my application!

I'm based in Vancouver, Canada, and consider myself a Digital Creative. I love everything that has to do digital media, having worked mostly in Film and Video post-production and Video Editing. Whether it's Animation or Live Acton, working with footage in an open and flexible way is an essential trait, as is precision, attention to detail and good organizational skill, something I was able to hone and sharpen in my recent experience on projects like Sonic The Hedgehog and Aquaman. In addition, I work on video games in my free time in Unity Engine.

As a lot of my daily work is under NDA, I can't show it here. The examples below are:

- "ZERO SUM" a title sequence I made for a small editing competition.

- A Show Reel I edited for a VFX Compositing Artist
- Trailer to my first little indie game, CHESTNUT GROVE

- My older variety reel featuring editing, coloring, and title design work.
