My name is Peter Burgess and it is a pleasure to be on here to share some things with you.
First, right now I am attending Utah Valley University in Orem, Utah and my major is in Digital Media, area of emphasis in Cinematography. So I really love all things digital, especially cameras and being able to craft a story using them. And I am an Apple fanboy, just love the macs and iPods, hopefully some day I’ll get an iPad to be a portable portfolio. Kinda tough to save for one being in school. As part of schooling and my own freelance work I am an Avid Certified Editor, and know the suites from Avid, Adobe and Apple. I built a hackintosh for my editing machine. And do some shooting and photography work as well.
Second, don’t be surprised if you see stuff on here dealing with the African nation of Cape Verde. I served a two year LDS mission to Cape Verde and just loved it. The people there are the nicest and most welcoming people you could ever meet. I learned how to speak Portuguese and Cape Verdean Creole while I was over there and still speak them fluently as I maintain a lot of friendships and connections I made while there.
So there you have it, I’m a video camera totin’, Portugese and creole speakin’, film maker Mormon that just wants to make the world a better place.
