Award-Winning Video Editor, Producer,
and Overall Creative Guy
Co-Founder of Team Gu
I've always loved creating and building things and making a great video is no different! If someone needs to tell their story and craft that narrative, I can help create an interesting, engaging, and professional video from pre-production through post-production.
With multiple awards for editing, I've created on-air promos, sizzles, web series, and tons of digital content and broadcast spots that have aired across the world. To enhance branding and create a more compelling video experience, in addition to mastering the skills of editing, I can also create still and motion graphics, sweeten audio and create realistic sound design, and even compose original music or mnemonics.
I built my career in the rat-race of New York City for over a decade, working for various companies with clients that range from globally recognized television networks to startups and local entrepreneurs. Now as an entrepreneur in Asheville, North Carolina, I work remotely with nationwide companies for all their video marketing and branding needs along side my wife Natalie as Team Gu. I enjoy creating sharp, eye-catching videos that tell a story and engage viewers and being fast, efficient, and able to anticipate issues while presenting solutions is what makes me a sought after video specialist!
In addition to my career focus of video work, I'm always tapping into my creativity whether it be through digital music composition under the musical artist name Petrichord, or hand crafted art like wood working, wood burning and crystal jewelry making under the banner of Make Your Mark Creations.

Skill Showcase Sizzle Reel
This sizzle reel features a montage of some of the client work I handled and am most proud of. All clips belong to projects I directly edited, but this reel also features examples of my motion graphics/effects, sound design, and original music composition. The opening and closing 3D titles were created in Adobe AfterEffects and the music was composed in GarageBand.
10 Figure Mastermind Event - Orlando
Kevin Harrington and Phil Smith organized a mastermind series to help entrepreneurs achieve their ultimate vision for their business. I was tapped to provide full service videos for this 2-day event, which includes production shooting/audio, copywriting, editing and graphic design.
Win Your Week web-series
Winner of a 2018 Cynopsis Imagination Award, this was an ongoing weekly YouTube series for Nickelodeon. I was tapped to be editor from the onset and it lasted for 42 episodes! Editing the bulk of the series, I created these 5-7 minute webisodes each week that included tips, info, and fun activities for kids. Garnering hundreds of thousands of views per week with a stellar retention rate, Win Your Week was a very long and very successful campaign that I was proud to be a part of. This is just one episode from the entire series.
Make Your Mark Creations - Wood Burning Promo
This is a great example of a full service video that includes production lighting/shooting, editing, graphics and music composition.
In this 2 camera set-up I recorded real time and time lapse footage of the wood burning process. Then composed a song and edited this promo with a graphics template.
The wood burning itself is also done by me, under the banner of Make Your Mark Creations.
This is a great example of 2D graphics, utilizing Adobe After Effects. Taking many small elements and animating them to follow a story is a powerful tool when footage is lacking.
