Hello! I’m Chris
* I will be relocating permanently from Philadelphia to Rhode Island in May 2017
In 2013 I relocated from Boston to Philadelphia where my partner matched for her residency at Pennsylvania Hospital. You might be on the hunt for a Photographer/Videographer/Audio Editor. I do amazing things with colors, textures, sound, video, and light. I specialize in intensive photo editing, retouching, video editing, audio production, print, and vintage styled art direction.
I’ve been covered in:
// ApartmentTherapy (twice!)
// PrintBench // CardFaves // DailyCandy
- Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, Lightroom, InDesign, Dreamweaver
- Ableton Live & related audio editing software
- Sketchup 3D
- Final Cut Pro
- Microsoft Office
- FTP & online file management
- Interior Lighting design
- Woodworking & Repurposing
In addition to holding positions as a graphic designer and Art Director, I work independently as a freelancer, handling a variety of projects for a wide range of clients. I’ve maintained a consistently high standard for myself that occasionally and excitingly requires me to push outside of my comfort zone. I enjoy learning new techniques, and approach that process with an intense focus and passion that I know is evident in the final product.
Notable projects / responsibilities:
- Ox Bow Decor // Principal Designer, Illustrator
- Natural Cloud Cover by Mish Michaels // Principal Designer, Layout, Branding & Identity
- QRST’s | Live at the Rat // Art Direction, Layout, Web Management
- Warner Bros. | Feature Film The Town // Lighting Design, set dressing
- AMC | TV Miniseries Rubicon // Lighting Design, set dressing
- Showtime | TV series Nurse Jackie // Lighting Design, set dressing
In addition to my resume & portfolio I am backed by excellent personal and professional references, which I will be happy to provide at your request.
