Professional bio

After film school I spent the first 10 years of my career working in NYC as a union grip and then a gaffer on features, commercials and music videos.  I learned lighting from some of the top DPs in the business and eventually used that knowledge when I started shooting.  I've put together a very sizable equipment package including HMIs, LEDs, a dolly and even a crane.  Pretty much anything you'd need to add great production value and tell your story in the best way possible.  Then I had a number of clients that wanted editing as well so I added that to the mix to become a Preditor.

I enjoy every aspect of the production process.  I'm happy to just shoot or light if that's all you need.  I fall in love with every project and am always looking for new clients.  The work samples on the site may give you a feel for the broad range of productions I've been involved with.

I love what I do so it's never been "work".  I don't mind the long hours and am always grateful for the opportunity to serve in any capacity.  I'd love to talk with you and see if I can be of benefit to your next production.
