What I love most about filming weddings is the energy and love throughout the day, everyone is so happy. I also love injecting style and artistry when editing in post and just enjoy the passion that builds every time I work on a wedding highlight reel. With a decade of editing video under my belt, I feel very informed when filming, it helps with capturing the right B roll.
I majored in video and painting at The School of The Art Institute of Chicago. After graduating in 2008 I worked freelance as a video editor eventually getting a job from 2011 to 2012 as Chief Video Editor at BN Interactive and the sister company Dentainment. From 2012-2014 I worked at X17 Agency editing paparazzi footage which was sold to broadcast television (TMZ, Entertainment Tonight).
From about 2012 on I edited wedding highlights, so far editing 22 total. I've also filmed many events. I plan on focusing on wedding and event videography for the rest of my life.
Besides video, I also have a strong background in painting (fine art). I've had about 60 art shows since 2005. I feel my painting background strengthens the creativeness needed for innovative and visually rich cinematography.
