Since making movies with his friends since he was 8 years old, JT never stopped being interested in video. Fast forward some decades and JT is an award-winning editor and motion graphics designer.
JT’s artistic journey is a bit of a homogenization of art illustration and video. The two feed into each other in his professional career as an editor/FX creator and in his pro-hobbyist side-work as a comic book illustrator/writer by telling stories through pictures, be they static or moving.
Raised on the south side and a graduate of Columbia College Chicago (BA, TV Post-Production), JT has enjoyed a fruitful video career in video editing (Premiere, AVID, Final Cut) in some of Chicagoland’s most prestigious production environments, winning several short film awards with his pals in sketch comedy group Kick A Rock and self-publishing his own comic book, “The Sapphire Spectre”.
During his free time, JT is into working too hard, video games and punk rock.
