I specialize in post-production color grading services for film and TV advertising. With a love for cinema as an art form, I pull inspiration from TV series, Arthouse film, fashion advertising, poetic filmmaking, and nature documentaries,. Color influences the entire tone of any narrative, and when an unforgettable story has a unique color palette and entire mood, I find it hard to get out of my head. I was introduced to color grading while working for Corvus Eye Media and KIND TV after I graduated college, taking on episodic projects and short films from 2016-2018. 

From 2018-2021 I worked at Seattle's post production house Clatter&Din, where I was their sole video editor and colorist. I learned Davinci Resolve during this time, while I was handed commercial projects for Eddie Bauer, Amazon, The North Face, T-Mobile, MOD Pizza, as well as narrative short films. As both online and offline editor, I edited, conformed, color graded, and worked with Clatter&Din's audio department implementing audio mixes from stereo to 5.1, ultimately performing all final renders to spec for broadcast and streaming platforms. I did endless sky replacements, rotoscoping, and secondary grades on Eddie Bauer's showpiece documentary Breathtaking K2: The World's Most Dangerous Mountain in 2020, the year I also worked on Lily Cornell Silver's award-winning Mind Wide Open web series for a year and a half.

In January 2021, Clatter&Din was bought by industry-leading post-production powerhouse Formosa Group (a Streamland Media company), whereby me and my team became Formosa Interactive Seattle. Ever since then, I've been continuing to edit and grade short films, documentaries, and commercials, while being a part of a worldwide network of incredible post-production professionals.
