Having extensive professional experience in the film and television industry as a Producer & Director of Photography, I have created a vast variety of content for companies such as the UFC, FOX, CBS, MGM, Break Media, Maxim Magazine, and Action Sports Group. I am local to the Las Vegas and Los Angeles area, specializing in shooting Commercials, Documentaries, and Live Events with the Arri and RED branded cameras.

Over the last few years, I have been fortunate enough to travel the globe and film some of the UFC's most historical moments. Here is a brief look at those moments I captured while being both inside/outside the Octagon. Every frame in this video was shot solely by me, pulling my own focus as well for the MoVI rig shots. Below is a list of the mix of gear I used throughout this demo.
