After working at Embassy Row, I was hired to be a media manager for Barbra Streisand’s concerts at the new Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn.
My mother is a violinist who happened to be playing these concerts…not to get all mushy, but it was pretty special to work on the same job so randomly.
Along with my partner-in-crime Anna Barcis, we organized 64 SxS cards to pass out and collect from eight ACs working all over the stadium. We merged our personal management systems (I love color coding) and stayed up all night dumping the cards, cross checking the cards with the drives, spot-checking the media, gathering footage from other sources (we had Sony XDCam discs and SD cards as well) and making our clones. The following day, I was sent to the rental house to format all the cards in the Alexa, which turned out to be a lot less frightening than it had originally sounded.
Nothing was lost or unintentionally destroyed and all was logged on paper and in my color coded Google spreadsheet (which producers were able to read and edit in real time).
This wasn’t an editing job, but I’m posting it here because it was an amazing experience thanks to the incomparable Barbra Streisand, the crew and ma momma. I am especially grateful to Mike Negri for yet again taking a chance on me and teaching me everything I need to know to grow quickly as an editor, right on the job.
If you’re on this site, all you probably care to know is this: I sure can manage the hell out of some media now! Oh, and Barbra is better than ever!!

This whirlwind of a video served as a backdrop to a runway show for Nick Arrojo at the Goldwell/Color Zoom Global Event. I did the research, full edit and all graphic composition. Best viewed in full screen. Even better viewed on a huge backdrop of a runway show.
