About Me

A seasoned professional with over 28 years of national and international, reality, home makeover, corporate, commercial, and documentary production experience. Available camera packages including two Sony FS7's , Sony a7s II mirrorless camera/Ronin S Gimbal, and DJI Mavic 2 Pro drone.

I am experienced at working with remote producers. I have a special built laptop stand to go next to camera for remote producers to conduct the interview via Zoom or Teams anywhere in the world. I can direct feed the output of my Sony FS7 back to the remote producer. I routinely arrange and provide for my clients, COVID safety compliant video crews ranging from a one-man-band to a full crew.

My clients include multiple large corporate clients, Brandstar, A&E Network, National Geographic, Discovery, NOVA, NASCAR, NBC Sports, NFL Network, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Red Bull Media Group, and the American Cancer Society.

My experience includes going on-location and finding the best "look angle" for an interview set-up. I am comfortable setting up a great looking and sounding interview. I have both Canon zoom and CINE prime lenses. My lighting kit includes Bi-color battery-powered LED panels, Kino Flo soft light, Arri 300, Arri 150, and DedoLight. I know how to shoot creative B-roll to make your editor very happy. I have my FAA and North Carolina state certifications for commercial UAS ("Drone") operation and I fly a DJI Mavic 2 Pro 4K drone. My company has $1 million in both general liability and drone liability insurance on all productions.
