Editor, RE:Evolution of Sports on Showtime

I shot footage of magazines to add a retrospective look to the content. I also worked directly with the writer to make sure that the narration fit perfectly into the story line.

December 2005 – February 2006

Editor, Untracked on FUEL TV (Fox)

My job as editor included taking several hours of 16mm, 8mm, helmet camera, and HDV footage to create half hour television shows that showcased the travels and experiences of a group of skiers and snowboarders. Established stories using character building, location set ups, action montages, comic relief, and sometimes a little horror to hold the viewer.


Editor, Jeep World of Adventure sports on NBC

Throughout my duration at TGR part of my responsibility was editing short (5-7 minute) segments that would be featured on the series. Segments mostly consisted of editing down content that had been shot for TGR’s feature film or Untracked series into a shorter version that would air on a one hour series showcasing sports much like “NBC’s Wide World of Sports.”
