About Me

I am a Saint Louis-based assistant camera (1st AC) and digital imaging technician (DIT). Trusted and reliable, I work very well with others even after long hours in tough environmental situations. I maintain attention to detail when putting together camera packages, pulling focus on a critical shot or transferring precious footage to backup drives. Having started in post-production, I organize data with the editor in mind and strive to streamline the process from production to post.

I have had an amazing career providing video production services across the country and around globe. I specialize in high-end corporate, government and commercial branded content with clients such as US Army, NASA, Dunkin Donuts, Altria, Trivago, Purina, Anheuser Busch, USAA and Boeing, and more recently, began working unscripted reality television and narrative series for HGTV, MTV and Showtime.

After nearly 20 years in this industry, production is still exciting to me, and I love to meet/network with other creatives.

Below is what is currently in my kit:

Canon C300 MkII Package | Data Management Kit (Macbook Pro) | Shotput Pro | AVID | Adobe CC | After Effects | Davinci Resolve

I have been in the industry since 2000.
