FILM & VIDEO EDITOR
6250 Palatine Ave N, Seattle WA 98103
I tell a compelling story, whether it is a commercial spot, a narrative film, a promotional video or a long-form documentary. I work directly with clients who have no experience and as part of a large creative team that does this for a living. I use editing and motion graphics programs to bring my client’s vision to the screen, whatever size it is.
