Days of London

I’m in London this week for Video Forum UK. Spent this afternoon wandering the streets nearby, and stopping in some institutions, like Harrods, and the V&A Museum. The jetlag is always the worst for me the first day. 🙂

On the Writer’s Strike, and being a Hand Model…

I got to spend the other day down in SF as part of a video shoot for Adobe Media Player. Basically, I was a “hand model” for the camera, pointing at various parts of the AMP interface, and mousing around on my laptop.

AMP is Adobe’s new desktop media player. If you haven’t checked out AMP yet, you need to. With the strike currently going on in Hollywood, the amount of first-run shows is dwindling fast. So, if you are a TV junkie like me, it’s either reruns, or reality shows. AMP has a ton of new, original shows to watch right now. I’m currently hooked on the comedy and animation channels. There are over a dozen shows in each category. Just go to the Catalog screen, and see what looks interesting to you.

To download the beta of AMP, check out It’s free, and it beats watching reruns until this strike gets settled.

Picture of Me…

Here’s who I am.. This is a shot of me on the playa at Burning Man:


January 21, 2008


I’m a Creative Suite Evangelist, with a heavy leaning towards the video and audio products. I actually got my start in the production world at a radio station here in Northern California. I was responsible for producing commercials and comedy segments for an afternoon sports talk show. When I started, I had a 2-track Otari reel-to-reel machine, a razor blade, and a whole lotta splicing tape. :p My first video jobs didn’t even involve a computer – just 3 VTR’s, doing A/B Roll editing.

Now, here I am, almost 20 years later, traveling the globe, showing the latest magic from Adobe in the video world! This blog will share some tips and tricks I’ve picked up for Production Premium, and will also chronicle my stays around the world. Next stop – Video Forum UK next week! I’ll be showing the new P2 workflow in Production Premium, as well as many other exciting things. Be sure to say hi.
