About Me

As an experienced field producer, camera operator and photographer with nearly 10 years in the film and television industry, I understand what it takes to develop, produce, shoot and edit projects to completion. My colleagues consider me a self-motivated workhorse with an eye for great stories and a strong cinematic vision.

Often working in remote, off-the-grid locations, I thrive on the adventures and challenges that come along with shooting and producing award-winning television series seen by millions worldwide. This has rounded my producing and technical expertise in numerous areas. I am professionally trained on multiple camera platforms, fully electronic gimbal systems, drone aerial photography, automated slider packages, lighting, grip and audio gear. Other areas of knowledge include crew and schedule management, storyboarding, post-production, and technical/logistical consultation. I remain professional, skilled and easy to work with while under fire, and have a proven record of delivering excellent content on time.

As my resume indicates, I have been successful in a variety of harsh shooting environments and tough living conditions, all while performing multiple responsibilities at once. From -60 degree temperatures on the frozen Yukon River to 30 straight days of trekking through the Simpson Desert, whether by foot, dog sled, snowmobile, boat, or bush plane, I create consistent quality work.

Clients include:
Discovery Chanel, National Geographic, History Chanel, RedBull Mediahouse, Men's Journal, ESPN, GLP Films, VICE, VH1, Original Productions, Brian Catalina, etc...

I have been in the industry since 2007.
