About Me

My clients include BBC, Nat Geo, Netflix, Discovery, CNN, CNBC, Reuters, Red Bull, Microsoft, IBM, HP, Cisco, Merck, Novartis, Airbus, and many more.
I have my Safe Sets COVID-19 Level B certification for film sets. My kit includes remote streaming gear & 15-minute COVID antigen test kits for cast and crew.

I'm a DP with extensive experience in TV and video. I specialize in corporate videos and documentaries and have also spent many years shooting news and factual programming. In the past, I’ve worked as a documentary director, segment producer and TV reporter, honing my abilities for working with contributors, understand the overarching story, and adapting to any project's specific shooting style.

I've shot just about everything, including thousands of interviews for clients such as the world’s top broadcasters and streamers, and the world's biggest companies. I’m happy to work alone or with a larger crew.

My COVID-19 preparations include:
• Completing the Safe Sets COVID-19 For Leadership (Level B) certification to supervise a film set safely during the pandemic.
• Offering onsite COVID-19 rapid antigen tests for all cast and crew. Results are provided within 15 minutes, allowing everyone to be tested upon arrival, before they enter the shoot location.
• Update-to-date knowledge of local COVID filming regulations.
• Comprehensive COVID kit, including PPE, contactless thermometer, and more.

Can't make it to Toronto in person? I can stream my camera's output to you live so you can direct the shoot and interview guests in real-time from any connected device. And, with a laptop placed right beside the camera, the interviewee can look you right in the eye during the interview.

Or, with my years of experience as a producer and director, I can even ask the questions and run the entire shoot myself.

Interviews are my bread and butter. My kit is extensive to ensure I can match the precise look of your production. It includes multiple cameras, numerous audio options, lighting for almost any environment, makeup, green screens, black backdrops, and much more.

I'm committed to not only getting the shots, but making sure the entire shoot goes smoothly: I’ll pamper your host, calm your guest, charm the skeptical publicist... anything it takes to get your project done.

I have been in the industry since 2010.


Professional and experienced camera operator along with audio/lighting requirements.
