RESUME

Profile
As a Director of Photography, it is my job to ensure that the director’s vision is met and maintained with the highest standard of creative visual storytelling.  Through precise lighting design, camera movement, and composition, my teams make that happen.  I have shot hundreds of hours of finished programming including independent feature film, documentaries, music videos, commercials and television programming.  
Having traveled extensively for work, I’m comfortable shooting anywhere in the world. In addition to lighting and composition design, I am a proficient director, camera operator, camera crane operator, and steadicam operator.
In addition to my experience as a Director/Director of Photography, I also am a provider of Cinematography equipment, including: RED Dragon Epic package w/ Zeiss CP2 Prime set, Camera Support gear, Cammate 25’ camera crane, SE2 Steadicam rig, Camera Car rigging, and 3 ton G&E Truck Package w/ Tungsten and HMI package up to 12k HMI and Tungsten.  A copy of my equipment list and pricing can be provided upon request.
