Multimedia Production

My work in multimedia production is rooted in my undergraduate degree followed my graduate studies, and ensuing work in video and audio productions. I start with pre-production, including scripts, shot lists, casting and hiring, coordinating, and contracts.

I direct and produce work, which can be a 20-person film shoot or a two-person podcast interview for which I act as host and audio engineer. I move into post-production with video and audio editing, foley work and sound design. When a production is complete, I also market and distribute the work, from podcasts to DVDs, festivals and streaming services.
