Hey, I'm Edward!

Felton, California

Edward Coffey was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area by an immigrant single mother from the Philippines.

At 17, Edward graduated high school and attended film school at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, majoring in Visual Effects. Not wanting to limit his potential, he took all of the directing, cinematography, and lighting classes he could take while still maintaining a demo reel in visual effects.

After film school, Edward enlisted in the US Army, where he learned public relations and broadcast journalism skills at the Defense Information School. He would serve with the famed 1st Infantry Division (The Big Red One) upon graduation, eventually deploying to Baghdad, Iraq. He would later move on to the Defense Media Activity at Fort Meade, Maryland, helping produce Emmy-winning commercials and PSAs for the American Forces Network, The Pentagon Channel, and DoD News until he left the military.

Edward would serve as the primary video content creator for Naval History and Heritage Command at the Washington Navy Yard. He produced the US Navy award-winning documentary The Galloping Ghost of the Java Coast, a documentary on the sinking of USS Houston off the coast of Indonesia.

Edward returned to California from Washington, DC, and acquired his master’s degree in Writing for Film, Television, and Digital Media. With his scope of education and experience, Edward continues to work as a jack-of-all-trades communicator and content creator.
