About My Work
I have over 4 years experience working as a visual researcher on over 100 episodes of factual, documentary, and true crime television programing which have aired on History, AHC, Velocity, and Investigation Discovery. I've also done some feature-length documentary film work. I have a wide variety of personal interests, from history and art to science and nature. Tracking down the copyright owners of footage and photos is my specialty along with finding cheaper options to meet tight budgets by utilizing the public domain. I'm also available for fact checking and general research. My IMDb page is here: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm8531919/
