Even though I'm an editor at heart, I thoroughly enjoy post-production and take pride in mastering all the different softwares and workflows involved.
I have worked with all the major NLEs: Avid, Final Cut Pro X, Premiere Pro and Resolve. I've also gathered a lot experiences beyond the regular tasks of an assistant editor, be it DCP mastering, data wrangling or running a small film festival.
If you're looking for an assistant editor or even a post production supervisor, I'm your guy!
