Videography, video editing & music

This video utilizes a 3D model which I rendered in Keyshot and exported into Premiere Pro with a transparent background. I modeled the instrument strap and buckles and texturized it with a pattern I created in Adobe Illustrator.
This video is used for Amazon. I shot the video in Valley Center California. The model is my son who fit the demographic perfectly. The video was edited in After Effects and output to Premiere Pro. I produced the song with loops and sound effects.
This video utilizes a 3D model which I rendered to explode in order to expose the battery. The screen recordings of the app were created with my own personal phone then integrated into the video. I also designed the DiverLog+ App logo which can be found on iTunes and Google Apps.
This video marks my directing debut. Unpleased with the material that I’d received from some photographers, I explained this concept to our marketing director at the time who have me a budget to shoot the scene of a model packing a travel bag with diving gear. The end of the scene shows him walking off the set – or to vacation. The brand logo pops out of the bag.
I created the music for this video which helped give it a soothing vibe. It ends with kinetic typography revealing the name of the product as the model does a cartwheel.

I welcome all professionals to my website. Described as a jack of all trades, I enjoy working on everything graphic design and multimedia related.

My story: I attended Platt College of graphic design in 1999 – 2000 earning my Associates Degree which, at the time was all that Platt offered. Staff members suggested that I join their team as a teacher’s assistant. Shortly thereafter, I landed a job at Delkin Devices.  While at Delkin, I learned about digital photography. After a few years at Delkin, I was offered a position as a Marketing Coordinator at Aqua Lung. Their graphic designer abruptly left leaving a lot of unfinished work during a critical time. I jumped into the designers seat performing double duties as both a package designer and marketing coordinator. Aqua Lung offered me the graphic design position. As the company grew, I found myself designing for multiple labels. An additional designer was hired to help resolve the workload. My skills flourished after Aqua Lung hired a new marketing director in 2014. My first project with the director was to create four videos for a new instrumentation line to be showcased in France. The first video (created in iMovie) was a hit. The director later approached me about a specific vision for a video so I suggested investing in Premiere Pro. Although I graduated from Platt College with my associates in Graphic Design, I also studied video editing, multimedia, web, sound and 3-D animation. As of today, I design packaging for the Aqua Lung Sport International line as well as the Michael Phelps Swim Method brand.
