Creating high quality content that captivates, inspires, and excites viewers is something that takes a combination of natural talent and extensive experience. Working on a variety of shoots, experimenting with different tools has allowed me to find how each shot may affect a viewer's perspective of a story line. My knowledge of the equipment and hardware available to construct a picture combined with creative resourcefulness to create a cinematic expieriance for the viewer is one of my best strengths. In addition to all I have learned at NYiT I have worked as a freelancer to gain valuable hands on experience in creating each step of a story's construction from pre-production to the detailed process of editing a story together. An understanding of the range of software available to bring together a picture is how an editor is able to bring a story to life. I have focused primarily on the editing programs Premiere Pro and the Adobe Suite with programs like After Effects, Photoshop, Audition and Muse. An in depth understanding of these tools has helped me to teach other students these programs as a Teaching Assistant in Editing and Filmmaking classes. I have extensive experience using the Sony Fs-700, which I use as my primary camera, and Red Scarlet and Phantom Slow motion Cameras. I have also worked on a variety of student films and corporate productions. I am eager to work, motivated to learn more, and hope to demonstrate what strengths I can bring to your team.

A short student project where I chose a Short clip from Transformers and voiced over the sound effects and voices of the characters for my audio practicum class at NYIT.

This is a Music Video created for the artist Zeeq.  I also produced the music for it under the name DJ Isto. It was one of my first endeavors into the music production industry.

My websites are created uniquely and each has been a learning experience on improving my products. I have created a variety of websites for different companies and small businesses, from bars in New York to small veterinarian offices in central jersey. Even this website was created by myself in order to show what skills I can put into a website for a potential client. I use a program from the Adobe Creative Cloud called Adobe Muse. I manage everything from creating creative content for a website to building and hosting for the website. I make sure that the servers that host my websites never go down and are always accessible.
