I am the experienced advanced visual storyteller, non linear editor and ENG truck operator that your organization needs to fill any current or future positions.
During my 9 plus years as a full time TV news photographer, I have moved up the career ladder quickly with my career goal always in mind. After a death in my family, I moved back to the west coast and transferred my skills and passion for my profession to the beautiful Central Coast of California.

I'm looking for an opportunity to further challenge and develop my skills, motivation, enthusiasm and passion for advanced visual storytelling. My philosophy is simple, a sincere compassion for my subjects and complete respect for my co-workers. As visual storytellers we must step up to the camera every day no matter what the assignment, to develop new ways of keeping our viewers interested in our stories. We must continue to challenge ourselves to take chances and experiment with new ways to shoot, edit, use audio and tell stories; ALWAYS with the viewer in mind.

I’m a hardworking, safe driving and reliable NPPA style video journalist with a proven record for consistently turning over quality work with a positive attitude. I am accustomed and thrive in a fast-paced team oriented environment, where deadlines are a priority and handling multiple jobs simultaneously is the norm. I truly enjoy my job as a visual storyteller and it shows. I work hard on my own and within the chain of command to attain a common goal of a creative and unique product that stands out above the rest. My attention to details and "think on your feet" approach has also allowed me to fine-tune all the creative, technical and professional skills necessary to remain consistent and be known among co-workers as the "go to guy."
With a resume and sample tape that demonstrates diversity, versatility and endless self-motivation, my references and I are confident I'm the ideal person for all your video needs.

Thank you for seriously considering my application again to become a productive, dedicated and hardworking member of your operation. If I can answer any questions concerning my qualification, please don’t hesitate to contact me at the number listed below.
