About Me

Hard working Cinematographer with a keen eye, and great sense of lighting and composition. I bring everything to each project, including a positive attitude. My main focus is to visually tell the story you want the audience to see, whether it is a feature narrative, documentary or commercial production.

I have been in the industry since 1993.

I recently hired Jeff on a trip to LA for a small documentary shoot for which he shot, did sound and lighting, contributed ideas and direction on the shoot and did some post-production. It was great to work with such a competent and invested PD, he was easy to work with, an excellent collaborater, responded quickly to queries both before and after the shoot, and his ideas really boosted the production.
