FILM BACKGROUND

I started U.S.C.'s School of Cinema-Television in January of 1984, and spent the next 8 years in Hollywood working and learning from some of the masters of the craft. Eventually, I finished my award-winning masters thesis film, "Among the Magic Mountains," and earned my stellar degree. 

At U.S.C. I practiced both fiction and non-fiction. The paid work I did was largely in post. From cataloguing several decades worth of films for the Visual Anthropology Department to operations assistant in a commercial video post-production facility. From cutting promos for Z-Channel (an early regional version of TMC) and studios like Paramount Pictures, to cutting and designing multi-screen installations for museums and theme parks.
