I am an award-winning filmmaker, writer and photographer in the Washington, DC, area. I have published more than 500 articles in various magazines and newspapers, and more than 1,500 photos in the same publications. Very active on YouTube, I have uploaded more than 1,000 videos to various channels. I recently won the Best Editor Award for the short film "Rendezvous" at the Mindfield Film Festival in Albuquerque, NM.

High-Quality Experience

It's important to me that my work -- whether it is writing, video or film -- be clean and clear. As a filmmaker, I've learned that it is relatively easy to get clean video, but it is much harder to get good audio. I go the extra distance to make the audio as clean as the video. And I know all aspects of a project, from writing to production to editing to rendering. Collaborating with other filmmakers and managing YouTube channels are among my specialties.

One of my personal favorite articles was on a notorious hacking event in the television industry. Targeting the Emergency Alert System at a couple of TV stations, hackers triggered an on-screen announcement that there was an impending zombie apocalypse.
