Creative, director, and photographer, with the recourses and team to produce, write, capture, and finish motion and print imagery.
My work experience spans 20 years, starting with degrees earned in Business, Studio Art, and an MFA in Film Production from Florida State University.
I spent the early 2000's in New York City, working my way up as a grip, electrician, and gaffer on everything from large studio & indie films to commercials and music videos.
After making the jump to Cinematographer, I began shooting promos for networks such as AETN and Discovery. I invested in digital cameras, post-production, and color grading equipment and started finishing projects from script to screen.
In 2011 I moved to Los Angeles, where I continued to grow as a filmmaker with new opportunities to write and direct. I began to build my print portfolio one image at a time, often capturing print and motion simultaneously.
I continue to integrate directing, motion, and print capture and enjoy finding creative ways to elevate each project for my clients. I see myself as an extension of my client's, or the director's unique creative process, stepping in as needed to help execute their vision. From creation to completion, I have the proven ability to stretch time and resources, and my grasp on each stage of production helps by freeing me to think outside the box for every situation. As either a Director, Cinematographer, or Photographer, I aspire to connect with like-minded people to achieve something great no matter the role or scope of the project.
When not on set, I spend time with my amazing wife and step-kids. I love to be outdoors, mountain biking, hiking, and skiing throughout the stunning scenery of Southern California and Utah!
