How is this page different from the Bio and Projects page?
This page is more of a timeline of my work history. It’s sort of like my LinkedIn profile rather than two long pages of bullets. Note: Major projects for each year include both personal and work-related projects.
Looking for a copy of my print Resumé?
A PDF copy is available here.
Is this in chronological order?
Yes and no. Positions and projects are grouped by starting year.
I have a question about…
There’s a pretty good chance I’ve answered it at the FAQ in the bottom. If I haven’t, feel free to shoot me an email.

Skip Beat! US Release (Work done June 2016, released November 2017) – During the Kickstarter for a US release of Skip Beat!, a call was put out for volunteers to assist with editing episode subtitles. I volunteered my digital red pen and was assigned episodes six and seven to work on.
Redubbing the NS Line (Released February 15, 2016) – A month-long project to re-dub the Portland Streetcar NS Line in its entirety. I did a low-res 720p export of existing footage I had and ran it through Logic Pro to extract the original audio. Details of every stop were recorded in a Pages document, and recording started with just reading off the entirety of the needed audio. The audio was recorded using a Shure SM7B microphone connected to a PreSonus AudioBox 22VSL connected to my MacBook Pro. The audio was then cut into chunks and aligned with the original audio, stop by stop. The first pass of aligned audio was duplicating, “The next stop is,” to mark where every stop was. The audio bit for each stop was then put in place in a second pass. The third pass involved placing repeated audio at the correct stops, such as, “Doors to the left”. The fourth pass involved manually ducking the dubbed audio over the original. The final pass checked timings, missed audio, and re-records of audio that had artifacts and/or other issues. The finished audio was then bounced from Logic and added to Final Cut Pro, where the original audio track was removed, and the completed dubbing put in its place. Some small video edits were then made before the finished project was uploaded to YouTube.

Why are so many of your positions for a relatively short time?
I was on Drexel’s 5 year/3 co-op program. For my major at Drexel, I attended Drexel for five years. Three of those five years were spent working for half a year at a co-op. Those co-ops were at BMS, NOAA, and Accenture Australia.
Are all of the jobs you’ve listed paid jobs?
No. Some were volunteer, some federal work-study, some salaried, and some hourly.
Why is Drexel listed so many times?
I worked in the University Archives as a Federal Work-Study Student for several years between co-ops. My final position with the Archives was as a Student Employee funded by a surplus in the Archive’s budget. I am extremely thankful to the Archives for their decision to use those funds to bring me back on temporarily.
You seem to move around a lot.
I do, yes. Moving is something I’ve become used to at this point. I’m hoping to call Portland home for a while though.
Is this a complete listing of everywhere you’ve worked?
As long of a list as it is, no. I am held to some non-disclosure agreements that prohibit me from listing everywhere I’ve worked.
Are you available for hire?
I’m thrilled you asked. I am currently employed full-time, but I am available immediately for part-time/freelance work. I am also available for a full-time hire, but not immediately. I would need to give a two-weeks notice to my current employer.
What would interest you for a full-time position?
I am currently only considering offers that would pay a minimum of $65,000 year after taxes. I do not own a car in Portland and rely on public transportation and biking. I am open to relocation, but not on my own expense at this time.
