About Me

CHICAGO RED EPIC DRAGON CINEMATOGRAPHER / CAMERA OPERATOR/ DIRECTOR / GAFFER

Since 1993, I have established myself as an Award-Winning Director of Photography passionate in narrative, story-based films. Stunning visual and practical on-set effects are present within the projects I am involved in. The presence of in-camera techniques and colorful vivid images are displayed prominently throughout my work. Creative projects include feature + short films, advertising campaigns, music videos, web series, sketch comedy, and promotional content. For corporate clients, I offer experience on hundreds of projects including ENG, industrials, interviews, B-roll, and event work.

I have years of experience as a Cinematographer, Director, Producer, Gaffer, Grip, AC, Editor, Colorist, DIT, Writer, and Storyboard Artist. The Owner/Operator packages I offer include 6K RED Epic Dragon and 4K Canon C300m2 digital camera, Cine Primes / Zoom lenses, lighting, wireless video, and focusing packages. Inquire for additional gear, rates, and examples!

I have been in the industry since 1993.
