2018 - Present: UFC Originals, Video Editor

Video editor since 2018 on the Originals team at the UFC, producing content for UFC Fight Pass and ESPN programs like Fight Flashback and the Emmy-nominated Greatest Fights.

In house video producer for Las Vegas based Impact Gaming, who fielded an esports team for the H1Z1 Pro League in 2018. Shot and edited a weekly documentary series giving fans an all-access look at how Impact's team adjusted to life in Vegas and lived together in the Impact Gaming house. The series mixes interviews with fly-on-the-wall style footage of practice sessions, daily life, and a unique perspective of raw emotions during Pro League matches. After the first half of scheduled games were completed, the H1Z1 Pro League shut down and Impact shortly thereafter.

In 2017, while working as KNDU's director of creative services, I shot hundreds of hours of all-access footage with a local high school football team positioned to make a state championship run. KNDU and Spokane based KHQ aired my six-episode documentary series titled Fear None: Football Season with the Richland Bombers on their dedicated sports channel SWX. I conducted interviews with players and coaches, and employed NFL Films inspired audio tactics to capture field audio and provide a unique perspective the team's run, as well as a primer on the history of Richland's sports and the school's controversial mascot depicting the atomic bomb.

Production assistant and Teleumndo show director at Kennewick, Washington-based KNDU. Moved into a role as the Creative Services Director in 2017, providing creatives for station promos and local clients, typically delivering a dozen creatives a week with limited resources and fast turnaround demands.
