A Note on COVID-19 (11/08/2020):
Even though the election of Joe Biden as 46th President of the United States provides some hope for the future, the entertainment industry continues to suffer due to a lack of federal assistance to buoy the industry while it remains closed to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Hundreds of thousands of workers have been out of work for over eight months, and they continue to face uncertainty around employment and the future. Please reach out to your government representatives to advocate for aid to entertainment workers, and all those who remain unemployed in this country, as the virus continues to spread throughout the United States.
Thanks for visiting!
My goal is to get the work done faster, better, on-time and on-budget. I approach that goal with a strong commitment to safety, a sense of humor and a straightforward manner armed with years of experience and technical training (and a couple of reference books!). Three central tenets drive my work: partnership, efficiency, and delivery.
Building relationships with creative teams and other production personnel is key to solving cross-departmental challenges.
The ability to manage resources effectively and maximize efficiency not only allows for an on-budget product, it also gets the best product for the materials available without over-extending the people involved.
I view delivery as a matter of doing what you said you would - keeping to your word, and making every effort to the best of your abilities.
