About Me

As a Film/Video Professional with ten years of experience I have gained a level of creative gusto that can tackle the most complex subject matter. In that time I have learned to manage exceedingly complicated shoots with clarity and confidence. Logistically, my time spent in the production offices of feature films has given me a keen sense of what is important. Creatively, my endeavors as a filmmaker have provided a sharpened awareness of the inner-workings of style. In short I am a hard worker and an independent thinker.
