Hello. My name is Isaac.
I’m a producer, video editor, post-production generalist, and technologist.
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
- Condé Nast
- 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.
