Hello. My name is Isaac.

I’m a producer, video editor, post-production generalist, and technologist.

I saw my first movie in a theater when I was four. That moment before it starts? It really is the best. After the opening titles started... that was it. Hooked.

At six, teachers routinely pulled me from class to "LOAD ,8 ,1" Commodore 64's. When I was eleven, I studied graphics programming for Apple IIe's. When I was sixteen, my roommate unboxed his Packard Bell and I started tinkering in Web design.

1997: went pro in IT. Started with a teleservices (read: telemarketing) firm. Months later, became their first, fully-dedicated Webmaster.

2000: a meet-and-greet landed an IT Director / Multimedia Specialist role for an ad agency in the Midwestern US. I wrote specialty apps in Adobe (née Macromedia) Director and Flash, Web apps using Java on the server, and supported one editor in one Avid-based suite. Anything tech-related hit my desk.

2003: a huge video project with the agency's biggest client arrives. Too much for one editor. I volunteered to help.

That one Avid suite became eight multi-NLE suites under my oversight.

The rest is history.

Client work includes:

  • Hormel Foods
  • Innovation Glass
  • Sotheby's International Realty
  • VidMob
  • Costco
  • Condé Nast
  • Cholula
  • Jack Links
  • McGraw-Hill Higher Education

I’ve conducted training on Avid Media Composer, Final Cut Pro X, Frame.io, and broader topics such as editing theory, typography, and (yes) title sequences.

Could you use someone like me? Here's my résumé. Let's talk!
