A lot of people ask me “what do you do?” Well the simple answer is: I am an artist…but the reality is; that expression has extended over a variety of media and even included marketing and developing learning. This to me is all part of my creative process. Some of the things I have done is create learning podcasts, commercials, and promo spots. From script writing, directing, story boarding, shooting, editing, screen capture, voice over and hosting, I produced video content in a variety of production roles over the years. My strength is concept, script writing, branding, story boarding, art direction, and directing. However having the background and skills in all aspects of video production and marketing have served my creative process well.
I have been editing video since 2000 and in 2005 I started producing learning content and in 2006 launched Peachpit TV for Pearson Education. Peachpit TV is the podcast network of Peachpit Press, Adobe Press, New Riders and Apple Certified. This project now includes over 18 shows on graphics, photography, video, Web design and creative business. I also hosted and produced several interview format shows.
In 2016 I started a creative media factory called Swirlpop. We are currently producing the film GentriFRIED. A documentary film that tells the story of gentrification and its affect on artists in the Oakland Bay Area.
