My first job after I left university was as an editor at a post-production house in Toronto. In one intense year I dealt with projects big and small, and while I soon moved on to TSN and a variety of television jobs, much of what I learned while editing helped me in every other area of TV. None more so than as a computer animator, doing show openings for in-house programs, which I did for five years in the 1990s.
While my day job for the first two decades of the 21st century was website and mobile app building, my other vocation has always been video, from capturing Canadian music videos I recorded on VHS in the 80s and posting them to my YouTube channel, to remixing contemporary videos to create new versions to accompany remixes of songs. Along the way, I've taught myself a graduate course in Adobe Premiere, After Effects, Photoshop, and Audition, plus Blender (the free 3D animation program) and Unreal Engine 5.0, the latest iteration of the video game building software that includes cinematic tools for creating 3D worlds for TV and film.
