About Me

I am a multifaceted creative thinker and resourceful problem solver with proficiencies in several key production areas from Directing, 1st AD, Scriptwriting to Field Producing and Camera work.

My passion is what drives me. Titles are unimportant. I absolutely love what I do, working in production, creating, being a team player, leading by example etc... I would much rather be working (whether it's Writing, Directing, 2nd AD, manning a camera, Field Producing or as a stand-in / extra) than to be sitting at home not earning a paycheck. For me; it's all about keeping busy and doing what I love. Being responsible, paying my bills and taking care of my family are priority number 1 and always will be.

The last couple of years I have been working freelance, but all I'm really seeking is stability; a consistent paycheck (be it PT or FT) I will not turn down any available position whether it's a 1 day gig, or something long term or long distance.

What has kept me busy in 2013/14? I've been shooting and directing for the Non Profit Org "Everglades Wildlife Alliance", worked on a corporate video for BCT Printing, a Real Estate series with Great Healthworks; filmed a Pilot at the Miami convention center for an Antique reality show, directed several videos for 1SaleADay with Miss Florida USA 2012 "Karina Brez", Cam Dept with Telemundo for Celebremos Juntos (A Christmas Special) and am the Stage Manager at The Undercover Unit.

Investors are of course welcome to contact me for financial gain opportunities as I have developed several ideas over the years that are ready to be produced as well as employers in need of crew members. I'm happy to speak with everyone.

Additionally, I often travel to and from Orlando (and vicinity) working frequently throughout the state of Florida.

Addendum: I co-own a company with my brother called: Corpse Nation. We create realistic horror props for feature films, T.V., shorts, Halloween, haunted houses and more. www.corpsenation.com

Recently Corpse Nation was featured on News Channels 6 and 10 as well as in print (Miami Herald, Sun Sentinel and City Link) to name a few as well as sponsors for the hugely successful "Festival of Souls" at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale, Florida (2012). Now working with The Undercover Unit in Miami FL. www.theundercoverunit.com We also have a prop in the upcoming film "Pretty" due out in late 2014.

I have been in the industry since 1999.
