PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

THE HOME DEPOT
Owosso, MI, United States

September 2008 - April 2015


In September 2008, I hired in to the Owosso Home Depot. After just six months, management had took notice of my hard work ethic and creativity, and promoted me as a sales associate in the Paint Department. Within the next six and a half years, that I worked for Home Depot, I developed a great understanding of how to provide excellent customer service, how to give respect to all people, to multitask efficiently, all while being disciplined and patient with my work.


Home Depot has played a big part in launching my career in production. In 2010 Home Depot

started a national video contest for talented employees to win an all expenses paid vacation

to Las Vegas, Nevada to perform live on stage for 4,000 company executives, and management,

needless to say, I was determined to win. In 2014, with two of my coworkers, we produced a winning video entry for the "Home Depot Search for a Star" video and music contest, gained national attention, and we were sent to Las Vegas for a week and a half of mentorship from Hartmann Studios. There we worked with some of the best in the business to put on a production of a lifetime. You can view our live performance here.


In 2015, I left the Home Depot to pursue video production as a full-time film maker.

I am thankful to the Owosso Home Depot for the opportunities for learning that I had there. 


SOVIS PRODUCTIONS
Owosso, MI, United States

April 2015 - Present


In 2012 - I was struck with the vision to follow my dreams, and pursue my passion for production.

Recording speech, music, and other audio using recording equipment is my strength, as I am an advanced user with multiple digital audio workshops, software, and plug-ins programs (such as Ableton Live and Native Instruments.)


Capturing, organizing, and stringing together raw video footage into a continuous whole to present a story with maximum effect is a specialty of mine. I am an advanced user with Final Cut Pro X.


In post production, I excel in determining the specific audio and visual effects necessary to complete films,
as well as assembling studio sets, operating zoom lenses, and selecting and arranging cameras,

audio, or lighting equipment to be used during filming.
