About Stephen

Portrait of Stephen Crutchfield

After graduating in December 2011 from SDSU with a Master of Arts in Television, Film, and New Media Production, I took a part-time contract job with the Navy to continue working as a Technology Transfer (T2) professional. I’ve been supporting the T2 office since 2009. I started as a film intern, creating technology marketing videos, and gradually took on more responsibilities. I fill the rest of my week with film and video related work.

I’m looking forward to furthering my T2 skills and my filmmaking career. I am thankful to be in a place where I daily improve my skills in marketing, business practices, entrepreneurship, program management, and video production.

Filmmaking specialties: directing actors, producing documentary and narrative projects, screenwriting, editing, videography/camera operation

T2 specialties: technology-focused marketing materials (videos, print), patent analysis, patent portfolio maintenance, market analysis, patent license agreements, CRADAs
