From music performance, composition, video editing, motion graphics, even adobe flash before that went the way of the dodo.

Always striving to learn new tools and improve the time it takes for thought to be built in the timeline for real, all while guiding the collaborative synergy at the edit bay to keep it flowing all the way to lock picture.
