The absence of limitations is the enemy of art.
— Orson Welles
 

Freelance Editor / Filmmaker

July 2009 – Present, San Francisco Bay Area, CA

Since 2009 I have focused on film/video, working in various aspects of preproduction, production and post, with emphasis on Editing and Directing. I’ve leveraged my years of Producer experience to develop methodologies for getting projects completed quickly and efficiently, and apply my Writing and Interactive Gaming experience in visual storytelling to editorial and shooting. 

In this field I’ve had the pleasure of working on indie features, music videos, web ad spots and short industrials, and indie featurettes, . I was also hired to rewrite the screenplay for an $18 mil feature film scheduled for 2018.

Director of Product Development

Namco Networks America Inc., San Jose, CA 2004–2009

Namco creates games for everything from arcade cabinets to mobile phones and is best known for classic games like PAC-MAN and Galaga and modern ones like Tekken.

There I was built the mobile production department from the ground up, both producing titles and hiring staff to manage a growing product line. I was responsible for working with Apple during the transition from feature phones to iPod/iOS/Smartphone gaming.

Producer + Chief Creative

Nuvo Studios, Inc., San Francisco 2000–2004

Nuvo Studios was a pioneer in mobile gaming, notable for having produced the first ports of games like Tetris and Bejeweled to mobile handsets.

 There I worked closely with clients, engineers and artists to figure out how to produce games on short schedules and small budgets on extremely limited devices. Some of the clients I was privileged to work with included Jamdat, Sony Pictures, Disney, PopCap, THQ and Nokia.
