About Me

Dedicated cinema camera operator and owner since 2014, known for my expertise in A or B-Camera Operation, V1 Multi-Camera Production, and versatile one-man-band videography for documentaries, docu-reality, and corporate interviews. Rooted in the Monterey Peninsula, my reviews demonstrate a track record of consistently receiving 5-star reviews from every client. As a skilled Drone Operator since 2014 and an FAA-Licensed Commercial Drone Pilot, I also specialize in advanced Multi-Media Cart operations, offering multi-camera switching, broadcasting, and comprehensive video village solutions. Beyond my professional prowess, I am a proud father of three, a former professional athlete, actor, healer, and educator in motion pictures, backed by a degree in Drama from San Francisco State University. My diverse background in acting, theater, directing, and teaching enriches each project, ensuring a blend of technical skill, creative vision, and unwavering dedication to excellence in the heart of the Monterey Peninsula and beyond.

I have been in the industry since 2014.

I've worked with Mike on multiple occasions and he offers a wealth of experience on set, a real know-how for gear, and he offers some great insights for working with actors as well. I highly recommend Mike and the team at House of 8 Media for your next project.
