About Me

Over 20-years experience as a Producer, Director, Shooter and Editor, for broadcast, live-events converage, documentary and corporate video production. Familiar with NLE workflows, proficient with HD video-production equipment, techniques and methods involved with lighting, audio, on-location setups for single or multiple-camera approaches.

Also an active musician, playing guitar and singing for blues and jazz bands. Toured Nairobi, Kenya in 2006 with Chicago Blues "All Star" band. Fifteen shows in fourteen days, including live-TV concert at Alliance Francaise, jamming with top Kenyan musicians and students.

Director Of Photography for The Crown Fountain project, in Chicago's lakefront Millennium Park. Working directly with artist Jaume Plensa, at The School Of The Art Institute in Chicago, I captured over 700 of the faces that appear on the fountain's 30-foot screens, atop 50-foot glass towers, using a Sony HDW-F-900 camera.
