I began my journey volunteering for local churches and high schools picking up work where I could get it. This evolved into attending a high school with a television production magnet program that acted as a feeder program for local news syndicates. I however decided that film was my avenue of interest. I worked freelance on music videos hunting the net for jobs. I later went to film school and got my Bachelor of Science in Film Production. I worked a few more music videos and the economy took a turn for the worse in Florida. So I decided to broaden my horizons and become a light designer, operator, technician, and bench technician to open more possibilities. Sure enough I found a job working on cruise ships and I have been doing that for the past four years. Now that I am well traveled and tired of living out of a tin can I am exploring land again in hopes to find work. I am open for networking and I would love to help out where I can, for a small fee of course. Anyways, I am here, let me know if you would like to talk further about work. Take care!
