About Me

I have worked in both long and short form broadcast for 26+ years.
Long form experience was with Bright House Networks where I was Sr Producer on Fascar this Week, a weekly racing show in Florida. Duties for this position were; cameraman, editor, writer, technical director and motion graphics designer.
Short form experience was working on call as a cameraman for Central FLorida News 13, a twenty four hour news channel.
I am open to all positions in Pre-Production, Production and Post Production in any location nationwide. I not only have experience but I will also relocate if needed.
