Hi!

My name is Rey, I’ve been working in video since 2000 in various ways, from DVD menu design (remember those?), to commercial work for major car companies.

The world of video is constantly changing. When I first started professionally I cut on a Avid 9000 machine with 160GB of space. Now even our phones have double that! But what I’ve always loved about video is the intersection of technology and creativity.

Without the technical skill sets, one will run into a constant battle of software and hardware issues, causing delays and unforeseen costs.

Without the creativity; well then what’s even the point?

I’ve been called a jack-of-all-trades, preditor (producer & editor), investigator & recently even an enigma. But whatever I’m called, I know one thing for sure: I want to always be learning while creating the best that I can.

Please, take a look around the site and check out some of my recent work that I am proud of.
