Presenting at NAB 2016!

I’m excited to announced that I’ll be presenting at the Adobe Booth in Las Vegas for NAB.  If you live near Vegas or have time to getaway, NAB is one of a very few shows that always has cool stuff for everyone.

Monday & Tuesday April 18th and 19th @2PM @Adobe

I’ll be sticking around the booth after the show, so please stop by and say hello.

NAB is a great place to check out all the new software and plug-in but it’s also about finding amazing camera gear and gadgets that you never knew existed. Plus you can try it out at the show.
