I am an experienced broadcasting professional whose goal is the most flawless production possible. From pre-production meetings, through production, image, and sound capture, to post-production editing and broadcast, knowing what to do right and what to do when something goes wrong is critical to the success of the show.

As a theatrical technical director, an audio engineer, or a broadcast engineer, I know the challenges a production faces, and constantly strive to prevent issues with best practices, react calmly when new issues arise, and learn from past problems.

- Theater Production: live sound reinforcement, live sound recording, light board operation, fly rail, carpentry, rigging, client & talent interaction
- Television Production: audio, camera, lighting, tape operator, teleprompter
- Television Post-production: non-linear audio editing, non-linear video editing, technical evaluations
