After graduating from Duke/USC with a degree in Literature, Film/Video and Business I shot short documentaries around the world. I have shot over 65 films on 5 continents in 3 years - this makes me ready to deal with all kinds of unknowns, edit quickly with confidence, and shoot on the fly. I can create short, fun and engaging videos for you, edited in a way that conveys the core energy and competencies of your business to the viewer. I love molding footage into a structured, flowing story and enjoy the creative process. My films have been featued nationally on Current TV, VH1 and NBC, and have received over 350,000 views on YouTube I also have experience with Photoshop, After Effects, Soundtrack Pro and LiveType. I am a regular blogger and am a killer copywriter/editor after my 4 years at Duke. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you to use creativity to make your message pop!
I have been involved in Linux and FreeBSD system administration for over 10 years when I began managing servers for a social networking website. After starting my own web hosting business and working in multiple positions in both the private and public sector, I consider myself an expert in system administration and designing systems to meet customer needs. With degrees in Business Honors and Management Information Systems, I can quickly articulate business needs and translate these into technical requirements. My technical experience allows me to then research and choose the best and most economical needs to match customer requirements.
