My career began as an original instructor at Sherwood Oaks Experimental College. I conducted a class for Hollywood professionals in 16mm filmmaking and moderated a lecture series entitled ANATOMY OF A FILM.
I then produced several independent video shorts that screened regularly at the original EZTV Video Gallery in West Hollywood before becoming a cameraman and editor of several award winning documentaries for Global Science Production, Afterburner Enterprises and Screaming Eagle Productions.
