Color influences the entire tone of any narrative. When an unforgettable story has a unique color palette and entire mood, it's hard to get out of your head. That's when I get excited. 


I specialize in post production color grading services for narrative film and TV advertising. With a love for cinema as an art form, I pull inspiration from TV series, Arthouse film, fashion advertising, and poetic filmmaking, and have had the pleasure of coloring documentaries, commercials, music videos, and narrative film. I grade in Davinci Resolve, and my color workflow spans ACES, Color Space Management, LOG grading, Powergrades, Color Chart, Masking / Power windows, and Film Emulation.
