I fell in love with film at 16. By the time I finished film school, I was already working in the business. I spent the early years of my career working as a union Grip, and then Gaffer on features and commercials in NYC. My strong technical background helps me to better understand and meet the needs of the crews I work with.
I then spent years running a production service and rental company which provided crew and equipment for commercials, music videos and feature films throughout the East Coast. This experience lead to working on the production side of the business.
I've been freelancing on the production of non-union shoots for years everything from commercials and industrials, to photo shoots TV shows and a few features. I hope that past knowledge and experience can be of service to your production.
I love what I do so it's never been "work". I'm always grateful for the opportunity to serve in any capacity. I'd love to talk with you about your next production to see if there's a way I can help.
