“If you want a happy ending, that depends, of course,

on where you stop your story.” – Orson Welles

He has 32 years of production experience with 16 of those years spent in Los Angeles.

He has edited music videos for Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Garth Brooks, Marc Anthony, ZZ Top, Scorpions, AC/DC, Black Crows and the documentary “Monsters of Rock In Moscow”. He even dabbled in comedy editing the Opening Sequence for Jerry Seinfeld’s HBO Special, “I’m Telling You for the Last Time”.
