About Me

I have been in the film and video industry for over 25 years. During that time I’ve acquired a diverse background in the industry with experience in many aspects of production. My cinematography work includes commercials, broadcast television, documentaries, concerts, and corporate video as well as six feature films and over a dozen short films. I have operated on shows such as Chicago P.D., The Chi, The Exorcist and others. Brands I have shot for include Miller Brewing, Illinois Tourism, Nintendo, Disney, United Airlines and many more. From the beginning lighting has been a central focus of my career. I’ve worked as an LD & Gaffer on multi-camera studio projects, live events, commercials and corporate projects. When not on set I can be found photographing landscapes & wildlife or building something in the workshop.

In 2001 I opened Visions of Light, Inc. Today we have become a leading supplier of equipment and crews to productions in the midwest and across the globe. We supply everything from a single camera package and DP to handling the complete technical aspects of a production. We have handled everything from a six camera live event production at the united center for Game of thrones Live to a single camera commercial shoot for Illinois tourism and everything in between. Recently we have added a vision Research Phantom Veo 4K camera package and a Motorized Precision Mia high speed cinema robot to our inventory.

In 2021 I oppened Precision Cinema. A table top, product and visual engineering studio. Unitizing Visions of Lights Inventory, the Mia cinema robot, and custom engineered rigs we create one of a kind visuals for brands and creatives.

Please reach out and let me know how I can help. I look forward to being a part of your next production.

I have been in the industry since 1998.
