      Steven Simone

      Video Editor

      Hi! I’m Steven and I’m the Video Editor here at authenticWEB. I love working with video and am an avid photographer. Here at AuthenticWEB I’m helping our clients tell their story through video. Everyone’s story is different, so I strive to make each video reflect each individual client. I graduated from UCF with a film production degree and hope to further pursue that later in life. When I’m not editing you’ll find me either watching movies, playing video games, or going on mini trips making my own personal films.
