I have two deep skill sets in Creative Image Retouching and Audio Production.
Creative Image Retouching
As a retoucher, I have expert level abilities that come from a 20+ year history of working in Adobe Photoshop, which include creative image editing, composting, reconstructive editing, and specific color matching and color correction. I have had a successful career working for various color houses and vendors in the Bay Area. I work quickly with a developed professional eye for quality and detail, and have excellent communication skills, being able to liaison effectively and efficiently with art directors and their staff. I have knowledgeable experience with the entire Adobe Creative Suite, and am able to take a project from concept to completion.
Some of the agencies I have done work for include Goodby, Silverstein and Partners, McCann Erickson, J. Walter Thompson, Hal Riney, and a continuing list of premier companies in the advertisement industry. I've also done a large amount of fashion work for The Gap Inc., whose corporate brands include Banana Republic and Old Navy.
In addition, I've worked as a freelancer in corporate and private branding, and have a track record of exceeding expectations and needs with a highly creative approach.
My audio experience stems from a long involvement in the Bay Area music scene. I'm a Billboard Award winning singer songwriter, whose last self produced solo release gained weekly rotation on San Francisco's KFOG radio. I've produced a number of albums under my vanity label, JeffyPop Records. I've also produced other commercial releases, along with many demos for local artists, and have engineered and edited voice-over tracks for independent films.
I have completed Certification Training in Avid/Digidesign's Pro Tools, and have an expert's level proficiency with the application.
In both the above pursuits, I consider myself a deeply motivated and creative thinker, as well as a positive team player who works well with both peers and directors. I enjoy being able to contribute to the success of a project in any way possible, and to that end take great pride in doing what ever it takes to see a project through to its completion.
