I started my career in L.A. interning with the film department at The Uprising Creative working on set and in the office for the official music videos and commercials of Kesha, Maroon 5, and Justin Timberlake, among others. From there, I began freelancing in the grip and electric departments working on feature films, music videos, fashion lookbooks, commercials, and anything in between. My interest in shooting led me to work as a camera assistant with the REDs, F5, C300, and ALEXA. Although I enjoy a variety of work in the industry, I now mainly work in the camera department.
