I’d like to use the knowledge and skills I’ve acquired working in the live event industry over the past 10+ years to help augment your company/project/event. My background has been primarily in projection, but I’ve expanded my skills to include playback, media servers, LEDs, camera work, and other video related roles.

I’ve done a variety of contract work over the past few years, but my largest accomplishment has been to be the first head of video for the multimedia installation at Cipriani’s 25 Broadway event space. This joint project between Cipriani & Moment Factory allowed me to develop my technical abilities as the primary programmer and technician for the installation as well as my leadership abilities as the head of video for live events.

It was also during that time I rekindled my passion for new media art and design. I’ve been self-training with Touchdesigner as well as a suite of other tools and feel this knowledge combined with my production experience would be a great asset to your endeavors.
