About Me

Looking for the perfect Covid-compliant social distancing camera solutions? We have the ideal equipment to keep your talent and crew safe without sacrificing production value.

• Remote heads: pan/tilt/zoom/focus remotely controlled from 100+ feet away on up to five cameras
• Jibs arms: with a fixed reach of 6 to 40 feet, the single operator is consistently distanced from the camera and talent, while increasing production value and allowing quick repositioning of the camera
• Techno Jibs: added flexibility with a jib arm that can telescope from 9 to 24 feet

Our crew is committed to following all Covid safety guidelines and wearing PPE at all times on set.

My credits include television's biggest events and shows – the GRAMMY Awards, New Year's Eve in Times Square, Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, Sesame Street, the Real Housewives, Project Runway, Good Morning America, SportsCenter, and more. Following a generation of Baltons in the film and TV business, I've spent my entire life behind the camera. I was building jibs before I was building Legos! I have over a decade of experience.

I have been in the industry since 2004.
