About Me

Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, I have over a decade of experience as a Director of Photography, Camera Operator and Editor. I own and operate three Canon C300 Mark II's.
I'm extremely proficient w/Canon and Sony Cinema cameras. My camera work has taken me on assignment all over the United States, Europe and Asia with broadcast clients such as ABC, NBC, 9 News Australia, Bloomberg TV and Corporate clients such as Google, Dreamtek, Box, Intel, P. G. & E, Cancer Research Institute and Genentech.
My experience in dealing with clients from across the globe has helped to shape a strong sense of communication with others from inception of ideas through completion, while keeping an eye on budget and time.

I have been in the industry since 1999.
