I've been a storyteller for all of my life. Now, here I am as an adult making a living at it by helping others tell their stories and it's been amazing.
I've worn many hats in the field of visual communications: cinematographer, videographer, photographer, gaffer, grip, electric, graphic designer, writer, video editor, and sound editor.
My videography has helped reduce workplace injuries by showcasing proper ergonomic techniques in several corporate training videos.
My photography has been responsible for increasing online sales of automobiles.
However, my true passion is in cinematography. Specifically, I've shot many music videos that have helped musical acts grow their fan base -- many of those videos now have thousands and thousands of views. And the views just continue to grow!
I'm known for my creativity and drive. I value in myself, and others, a sense of humor, collaboration, loyalty, challenge, and having a healthy mind and body. Most of all, I love what I do for a living; life's too short to be miserable.
I'm not a superhero but I know how to create beautiful images using the most minimal equipment. I also have my own quirky phrases I like to use when working -- it's a good morale booster.
I want to shoot your next project. So, if you have a story you want to tell, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
