About Me

I am an experienced filmmaker, DP and photographer and have been working as freelancer since 2000 as a photographer and 2009 as a filmmaker. I have created many ads, promos, profiles and mini-docs for many large and small corporations, non-profits and universities. I can provide services in studio or on location. I have a private home studio where I regularly shoot product photography and video with my full kit of lighting and grip.

In addition I have self-produced a feature length documentary called "A Drop of Water" which I shot in Cambodia and filmed in Asia two other times for non-profits. In 2017 I DP'd my first feature length narrative called "False Hopes" and another short film called "I'm Sorry, I Love You".

I specialize in creative, flexible, small productions from to start to finish. I can provide interviews and people centered stories for corporations, ad agencies, educational institutions, religious institutions and non-profits. My personal favorite is comedy pieces where I can be involved in the visual aspect of bringing the humor to life.

Equipment on hand includes a RED Komodo, Fujifilm X-T4 and X-T3, Easyrig Minimax, Rhino 42" and 24" slider rails with Motion II 3-axis automation. A Sennheiser wireless 2 lav kit. 3 Aputure 120d's, Aputure Nova 300c RGBW and 1 Aputure 300d with various modifiers and grip gear.
Still equipment includes strobe lighting with modifiers and a Fujifilm GFX50r 50mp medium format camera.

I have been in the industry since 2005.
