20 time Emmy award winning DP/Camera Operator, Producer and Director with over 25 years of experience in the Film, Television and Audio business. Extensive professional experience for top clients across the country from Miami to Anchorage, from New York to San Francisco. International production experience in South & Central America as well as China for both documentary and commercial production. Well versed in handling both low and high budget production ($1k to $3.5m). Professional still shooter as well with full ProFoto strobe lighting and speedlight kits. Lots of contacts in the Detroit metro area and in major cities across the globe for every type and size production - full cinema production, 3D production, aerial shoots, camera car, crane/jib, etc. I have shot, explored, camped and lived from one end of Michigan to the other so I know the region pretty well, particularly it's most out-of-the way areas.
I established PICKAXE Creative in 2013 after 12 years with a metro Detroit advertising agency, a few years at an ABC affiliate, and several years of freelance work before that. Since then, I have worked with major entertainment content producers like HBO & Netflix as well as icons of the industry like Michael Bay, Zack Snyder, Mark Wahlberg and Ben Affleck. But every year I primarily produce content for broadcasters, journalists, start-ups and companies both big & small... So give me a call - I'd love to hear about your next project!
I have been in the industry since 1992.
