Professional goals and accomplishments
With 10 years of experience producing, shooting, and editing stories for renowned broadcasters, my interest in producing video is taking on new dimensions. In this period of rebuilding for a smarter, sounder economy, multi-tasking and reaching across disciplines are part of the equation more than ever. I am capable of telling stories, whether they be news stories, human interest and mission-oriented documentaries, or glimpses into entrepreneurial visions for future growth strategies. And I enjoy doing this through web and television channels. I am looking to join or collaborate with people who will share my enthusiasm for efficient work methods, quality results, and the creative outlook that has become so important for these changing times.
Experience in the news industry has taught me how to work quickly and calmly under high pressure and tight deadlines, all the while delivering quality results. Understanding the importance of reliability and trust for building successful relationships, I value efforts to forge lasting business relations. With a special knack for seeing strategic alliances between people, I am known to be particularly effective in facilitating connections across a wide range of fields.
Good-natured and friendly, I tend to seek out people who share my appreciation for working in a harmonious environment that fosters plenty of respect, flexibility, creativity, and efficiency throughout a project's life cycle. That's my conscientious side. Driven by a natural inclination to take the lead and offer competence in taking projects from early conceptualization through to the finish line, I also thrive in projects that allow me to work independently, following what usually tend to be sharp instincts for what it takes to tell a compelling story, while saving time and money in the process.
