8/13 – Current

I currently work as a writer/producer/editor for the Outdoor Sportsman Group. We promote three outdoor themed networks: Outdoor Channel, Sportsman Channel, and World Fishing Network. I write, produce, and edit both daily promotions and network image spots for all three networks. My duties include concept development, script writing, footage sourcing, editing and post production of finished spots. I also supervise the graphics and audio mixing. Often I create the graphics myself. I work to explore and create concepts, develop marketing strategies for individual shows and the brand development of the networks. Our spots are a mixture of daily and generic promotions and long form image and EPK promotions. Other duties include providing interview questions for network talent and brainstorming shoot concepts for both internal and external clients.

During this time I worked at several different freelance opportunities across Los Angeles, many of them on a per-project basis. For one, I worked as a freelance editor for “Dish Nation” and created promotions for the various daily television shows for whom Studio City produces promotions. This includes Ellen, Katie, The Talk, Dish Nation, and Burn Notice. I was also contracted by VSquared Labs to work on the American Idol stage graphics for the 2012 season. We were involved in creation of all the looks that were displayed on the large scale LED and Projection monitors. Our creative work was completed in After Effects to be displayed via Pandora onto the video walls. We were working in resolutions upwards of 14k by 9k pixels and producing 24-48 looks every week. In addition to being responsible for creation and animation of my own share of the looks required each week, I was also placed in charge of not only creating but maintaining and running the 30 computer render farm, utilizing the Royal Render software. This involved using TeamViewer to check on renders from home as well as maintain the render farm on the overnight.

I worked in NBC’s MAGIC Room as an Editor and Graphic Artist. I cut promos and promotional tapes for special programs and programs launches.

I was then kept on to serve as one of the regular team members for daily work and other larger special projects.
