A little history if you’re interested…
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
- 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!
