The seed was likely started when I was left home alone with my father's video camera and good amount of time and creativity on my hands. From the days of editing between two huge tape decks in an editing room to pulling 4K footage from a camera's SD card and dropping it right into my laptop at a shoot, you wonder, "What could possibly be next?"
I've put those years of playing video games to good use. I'm an FAA Part 107 small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (drone) pilot. This is important if you plan to hire a drone pilot. If a drone is being used for business in any way, you must use a certified pilot during the flight. Otherwise you and the drone operator risk being fined by the FAA or worse yet, not covered under insurance if something is damaged during the flight. The drone is operating in federally controlled airspace. You need to use someone who knows the rules and has insurance.
I've always loved audio. Music, voice-over, sound effects, foley. It's just another art form, manipulated and contoured for the ear. I also do voice-over work. If you're interested in that, visit voByMe.com
