A little history if you’re interested…

KCOY-TV 1999-2014
I started as a videotape editor for the News Department at KCOY-TV CBS 12 in Santa Maria in 1999 (a couple months before I graduated High School).  Putting my editing skills to work every day by editing dozens of videos for the newscasts gave me the efficiency I enjoy today.  I quickly moved into the commercial production department where I began writing, directing and shooting TV commercials for local clients.  If you had a commercial produced at KCOY between 2002 and March 2014, chances are I helped produce it. I worked with hundreds of businesses and organizations as well as outside ad agencies producing thousands of commercials within that time.  To work with such a variety of business owners was an amazing experience. Not only did I get to help advertise their businesses, but I learned how to work with a spectrum of personalities.

Adverb Marketing Group 2014-2018
One of the ad agencies I produced for at KCOY approached me about working directly for them.  In April 2014 I began working from home for Adverb Marketing Group.  Over the next 4 years, I wrote, shot and edited about 1,000 commercials for about a dozen clients, mostly car dealerships.  Not to mention print, online ads, and several websites.

On My Own
As of May 2018, I have been working directly with businesses and with many ad agencies to produce:

  • TV Commercials
  • Promotion videos
  • DVD/Blu-ray projects
  • Digital signage
  • Interactive Displays
  • Live video support
  • Websites
  • and more!

Thanks to the help and support of my wife Michelle and our kids we have all adjusted to the self-employed life!  It’s tough writing about what you have to offer without sounding braggy, but I will say this… with all these years of experience in production, I know what I’m doing.  My customers are happy and they keep coming back for more!
