For the debut livestreamed concert of Apple Music Live, I edited
several quick turnaround videos for the broadcast, along with a
longer piece to be released later. While the rest of the team captured
Harry’s passionate fans in line, some who had been there for 4 days

I developed and directed Genius’ live-streamed, interactive concerts with artists The Kid LAROI, Ty Dolla $ign, Tate McRae and more. For this project, I built a custom, remote-first, live-streaming workflow using Amazon Web Services' EC2 cloud computing platform.
I directed huge, career-spanning interviews with Mariah Carey, T-Pain and Nicki Minaj. With a live audience, host Rob Markman drew deep into the artists’ background and showed how they changed music.
In addition to editing episodes with Charlie Puth, Billie Eilish, Lil Nas X and more, I created the template and workflow for Genius’ flagship show, used on 1,000+ episodes. This involved best practices for chroma-keying in Davinci Resolve, the round-trip to Premiere Pro and the development of motion graphics assets that simplified and standardized creation.Watch Charlie Puth Break Down “Attention”
