About Me

Hello, thanks for stoping by. If you haven't noticed yet, I'm a DoP. Since the first time I was handed a camera at 11 years old I knew this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I studied film production at Boston University and jumped (tripped) into my film career. I have experience in feature films, short films, TV Series, commercials, music videos, and corporate.

Working as a DoP is one of the greatest joys of my life. It has not been an easy road, but one I would take over, and over again. Filmmaking is not for the faint of heart. It takes every fragment of passion you have. So, you better stay passionate, inspired, and full of curiosity. Most people will tell you to grow up, but I think the trick to life is to see the world as a child. Full of wonder!
What inspires me are new ideas and unexplored stories. I like to approach each project with fresh eyes to dream and visually create a unique world for the story.

Check out my cinematography reel with the link below and hit me up if you would like to collaborate.

Let's create something together!
