Area of Expertise:
An unusual trifecta of writing, documentary/narrative editing, and heavy duty visual effects experience. Very creative, very strong technically, I often end up heavily involved in projects, from production through creative. I'm always striving to make any project bigger, stronger, and richer. Finally, I'm likely the only geographer and shoemaker you've ever edited with.
Comments and Things Worth Noting:
I've worked on a huge range of US and international commercials, feature documentaries and short films, and taken two documentary feature films to the Sundance Film Festival over two decades in the business, working with clients such as:

Oh, and the President of the Unites States. I was invited to Washington D.C. to cut Barack Obama's 30min. TV campaign broadcast which aired before the Nov 2008 election. Simulcast across the US on seven networks, it was seen by 33 million viewers. It was the ne plus ultra of insane deadline pressure, and an incredible honour.
