Hey there! I'm Izzy, and I'm a Digital Producer who has been training on Final Cut Pro, Motion, and other media-creation programs since 2006. While I'm probably best known for my Final Cut Pro tutorials, I also train on general videography topics such as lighting, audio, and operating a camera.


I've received feedback from learners from all walks of life, and it's clear that both professionals and hobbyists use my training to take their production skills to the next level.
