About me
I'm an experienced Quality Control Operator with 14 years worth of knowledge in DVD, Blu- ray and VOD, working on some big titles for clients such as WWE, UFC, Universal and Disney along the way. Most recently I've been working in VR QC'ing VOD content for the MelodyVR app. In the last 2 years I have branched out into creating individual edits for artists and provide graphics for social media and internal/external projects both in 2D and 360VR. I have also been responsible for providing shot clean ups for VR content.
