Kathleen Gutzman

Video Production

Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
I am a passionate person who puts my full energy into almost everything I do. I love working in media because it is a fast paced environment that I thrive in; always presenting new and interesting challenges and allowing me to balance a wide array of skills, projects and ideas.

At The War Amps I wear many hats; it allows me to constantly develop new skills as technology changes, as well as brush up on any that may need refreshing from time to time. I am able to take a project from concept to delivery, while maintaining a clear direction and workflow from the onset. Organized, adaptable and a genuine team-player who would rather share ideas and information than claim ownership.
