I started working in the film and television industry as an actor and voice artist. I had some amazing success early on in my teen years but was hit with the "behind the scenes" bug around the same time.
One day I saw an editor cutting a scene I was in. I hated what he was doing to my performance. The lack of power I had over my acting once it was in an editor's hands drew me into learning more. Soon after I found I loved it almost as much as I love acting.
In 2001 I was hired by Royal Caribbean Cruises to be a Broadcast Technician. Think filmmaker for the cruise lines. They flew me around the world to shoot, direct, write, edit and produce documentaries, celebrity interviews, company promos etc...It wasn't soon after until I was promoted to Head Broadcast Technician. At twenty three years old I had an annual budget of a million dollars and ran an onboard 42 channel television station.
In 2006 I retired from the cruise ship life and returned home due to my niece Hannah being born. She had to know her cool uncle. So I spent four years in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my family, all the time growing my filming, acting and editing experience. In that time I edited and assistant edited for shows that aired on the Discovery Channel, History Channel, CBC, TV Tropolis, Women's Network and many more.
In 2011 I moved to Vancouver, British Columbia to continue my growth in the film industry. It was an amazing three years where I was able to edit promos, commercials and lifestyle television shows,
Afterwards I moved back to Nova Scotia to spend a year or two with my family before the ultimate move to California. I then was contacted by DHX media and thrown into the animated series world, working on multiple animated television series for networks and companies such as PBS and Amazon Prime: TV.
Since then I have worked in-person and remotely for companies in Toronto, Ontario, and have recently returned to Halifax, Nova Scotia to continue my work as a filmmaker.
