I am an Emmy-nominated producer of Great Decisions on PBS, America’s longest running national television series dedicated to the nonpartisan discussion of U.S. foreign policy and global issues. In that role, I film and conduct interviews with foreign policy experts in and around the U.S. government. Since 2006, I have been the lead video editor of the program, which is produced by the Foreign Policy Association.
I serve as a workflow consultant and software designer, writing custom tools and processes to dramatically improve workflow efficiency for film and television post-production. Some of that software is available free or for sale on this website. I am also available for hire to design the perfect customized workflow for your production.
I have edited television programs and commercials that have been seen across the United States and internationally. My editorial work on corporate films has helped raise funds and rebrand clients ranging from an Ivy League university to a corporate jet company. In the beauty world, I have edited television and viral campaigns for companies, including Olay and Nordstrom. I have edited music videos for several artists, including singer/songwriter Ben Folds.
I am the author of the book Sound Mixing in TV and Film, part of the Exploring Careers in Film and TV series by Cavendish Square Publishing.

In the post-production industry, everybody’s time is valuable.

Here are some case studies where I sped up workflows using custom software and had a measurable impact on creativity and the bottom line.
