I'm a motion picture editor working in Los Angeles. You can check out my credits here: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0169797/ Though I began my career using traditional film tools, I the early 90s I worked closely first with Montage, Ltd. and then with Avid Technology to help them build a user interface and feature set that would speak to people like me. I'm very proud of the part I played in developing what was to become the gold standard for professional editing. During that time, I edited the first studio feature to use the Media Composer and the first TV movie that used an Avid to conform a film negative. Most of the film and list features that became a standard part of every film editing room were specified and tested by me and my assistants. During this period I also wrote a book called "Avid Media Composer Techniques and Tips," which was very popular and which is still used by many editors as a reference.

From 2000 to 2004 I helped create then worked as the publisher of the Motion Picture Editors Guild Magazine.
