With twenty plus years experience in music and audio production and fifteen years in film and video production I've launched both a film production company and record label in hopes to feed an insatiable passion for storytelling.
I also produce engaging videos for companies or individuals looking to market their brand and maximize their internet exposure. I specialize in search engine optimized, high quality video, with comprehensive web distribution including video search engine optimization.
My first feature film was picked up Tubi, Roku, and Peacock. I was the Director of Photography on four distributed feature films, directed four short films and shot numerous music, commercial and corporate videos. I'm also an accomplished graphic artist and web designer. I've created logos, corporate branding, and have helped many companies market their product or services over the web.
Before getting into film and video production I was an IT professional. I was fortunate to be part of projects that would shape my technical skills. Projects such as, Universal Studios, Toyota and Household Financial Services where I developed various information systems reports for different departments. I retired from my IT career at a non-profit company LAANE, where I managed their IT department before going back to school to pursue a career in film.
