Out of college, I got my first break in media/TV when I was hired by NJ 101.5 radio station. They were starting a TV station which would simulcast the Jim Gearhart radio program, ala “Imus in the Morning” & Howard Sterns show, live on Comcast cable. There I learned Television Directing, as well as had my first experience with Newtek Lightwave. That is the time I learned Adobe Photoshop (ver 2 at the time), which was probably the most important program I ever learned.
IN 1995, I left NJ 101.5 for Lanmark Group, to become an editor/producer for an advertising agency working on commercials, corporate videos, and web content, using a Discreet *edit system. It was also this time that I built an editing system based around Adobe Premiere, and started as a freelance editor in my spare time.
In the 2004 NFL Season, I went to work for NFL Films in Mount Laurel NJ, as an film editor on both Final Cut Pro and Avid Media Composer, where I remained until the 2008/09 season. In December 2008, prior to the stations launch, I joined MLB Network as an editor/producer.
