SonicPool is now POST PRODUCTION INC.

Post Production Inc. is a full service post production company headquartered in the heart of Hollywood.  Every day we provide industry professionals a comprehensive line of Post services, Rentals and Technology Products.

In 2017 SonicPool changed its corporate name to POST PRODUCTION INC.  The name change was to better reflect the actual capabilities and vision of the company.  That vision is to become the world’s premier Post Services Provider.  That’s right, we said it, we want it all and we are not shy about wanting to provide the very best Post to all industry professionals in the world.

Since its founding in 2001, SonicPool (now Post Production Inc.) served the entertainment industry by delivering on its simple mission to provide quality creative services that are on time and on budget with creative and technical excellence.   Now POST PRODUCTION INC. will continue this tradition but will also add to it by insisting on challenging the status quo of the industry itself.  That is to say, if there is a better, faster, more efficient way to provide quality services and rentals, we want to be the company putting it into practice and doing it first.  We are committed to the attitude of; “whatever it takes” and we will move heaven and earth in our quest to impress every industry professional who walks through our doors.

Meet Your New Best Friends, Who Make it All Happen.

Sound Design, Editing, Shooting, Mixing… you name it, if it has to do with creative content, then I’m in! I started off in New Jersey doing live sound, camera work, video editing, radio commercials, recording bands, and working master control for TV stations throughout college and shortly after. This all kept me on my toes, bouncing back and forth between Trenton, New York and

Philly, where in addition to other fun projects, I had the pleasure of working with master artists the likes of Megadeth, Phish, The Ramones, Faith No More, The Rollins Band, Fishbone, George Clinton & the P-Funk All-stars and Blue Oyster Cult.

I eventually made my way out to Los Angeles via a four month long motorcycle ride and camping trip. Unfortunately, no one in LA wanted to hear my “jack of all trades” story, so I picked my favorite gig, and I honed my skills in recording, editing, sound design and mixing for post production.

Eventually, a friend and I (my pal John Frost) began to pick up extra work and all we did was work, work and work. We were passionate about offering the best services at very fair prices. We believed, that with new technology, you could do things faster, better and cheaper…you didn’t have to pick just two. Our hard work and forward thinking paid off and we blossomed into a full service post house today known as Post Production Inc. So here I happily find myself again surrounded by all things post…and now with two locations!

In addition to my post related obsessions, I am also an Eagle Scout as well as a Philadelphia Eagles fan that enjoys riding my Harley and occasionally shooting some trap and skeet. (Making clay pigeons explode is a great stress reliever by the way!) Stop by the studio and I’ll show you how to tie a taut line hitch knot, rap about my plight as an Eagles fan, or regale you with tales of one of my cross country motorcycle trips as well as all the “interesting” people we met at the campsites along the way.

Born and raised in Southern California, I never thought I’d end up in the entertainment industry. After a year as a Chemistry major, I decided to change my focus to Film and Media Studies. That was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I’ve had the pleasure of working for Post Production Inc. since 2007. Over the past 11 years, the knowledge I’ve gained has been invaluable. Being able to grow and learn as the company itself has grown has been a blessing.

Having spent the last 34 years in the entertainment industry, there’s not much else I can do, with the exception of playing the bass guitar and tennis – but not at the same time. I was the head of post for MTV on the west coast for better than a decade, and I’ve also run post for a number of production companies in the LA area. With a diverse background in TV, Film and Documentaries, I’m the perfect guy to talk with about your project.

I’m also a grandpa, which means I’m wise…you should get to know me.

Originally an editor for NBC and CNBC where I cut for former Vanity Fair Editor Tina Brown and financial news stalwart Maria Bartiromo, I chose to move out to Los Angeles to get away from news and instead work in the Entertainment Industry. After shooting independent films, acting as an entertainment reporter for Hollywood Life and handling Camera Op duties for Doom Inc. on a a multitude of live rock concerts, I landed at Post Production Inc.
(formerly known as SonicPool) in 2006 where I’ve overseen the video and film side of the business as it’s grown from a small mom and pop operation to a multi-facility organization capable of competing with the best in the industry.

Being a part of Post Production Inc. as it’s grown, getting to work with great people and friends and having the chance to work alongside academy award winners and true artists has been a blessing and it feels as though we’re just getting started.

Post Production Inc. has become a part of our lives for my wife and I as well as a second family away from home. In my time away from work, like some of my offroading colleagues, I risk breaking every bone in my body weekly as I am an avid Dirtbike rider. For non-life threatening fun I’ve been playing guitar since I was 10 and I love 3D and VR.

Hailing from Wisconsin I came to California via Hawaii… yes, I eat cheese and no, I don’t own a cheese head hat… (anymore)
I’ve been in the sales and marketing arena for over 20 years and have done everything from selling educational books door to door in college to recruiting and developing sales organizations. I’m obsessed with everything having to do with digital marketing and helping businesses thrive whether e-commerce or brick and mortar.

Currently, I’m testing to see how many people click the “show more” button and actually read this section… so if you’re part of that group, I’d love to hear from you…😀

Outside of digital marketing, I graduated from MIT (not that MIT… I’m talking Musicians Institute) and have performed onstage all over the world.
I have an awesome wife from Japan who puts together incredible bento box lunches for me everyday. If you stop in before noon, come find me and see what unbelievable creation is on the menu for the day!
