EXPERIENCED EDUCATOR

I studied educational psychology at Loyola University in New Orleans and have been an Apple certified master trainer for their professional applications for over 15 years. Along with experience teaching a variety of courses on a variety of media production subjects for universities, national organizations, broadcast stations, and more.

I have taught post-production at LSU as well as lead their Summer Teen Filmmaking Bootcamp, video production trainer for New Orleans Video Access Center, been a guest trainer at New Orleans Center For Creative Arts, and have taught numerous courses for major corporations, broadcasters, and universities across the US.
