I first began this journey 15 years ago when I began volunteering as a camera operator at a local church. A few months later I was asked to be the program director, and I moved to the control room and was operating a four camera setup, with a switcher. I performed this task for four years, and then I moved up to Orlando from Miami, Florida. I again volunteered as a camera operator, and performed this task for eight years, but I also watched my older brother as he went through Film School. I then made the decision that I wanted to do this as a profession, so I went to the same Film School as he did. Operating a camera for 15 years made the learning curve very easy for me. I only had to learn certain terminology, and being an artist for 30 years also gave me a steady hand. So I'm a natural with handheld shots. While in school I filmed four spec-role commercials for Doritos. I also shot a documentary short about the Tuskegee Airmen, shot corporate events for the Central Florida Urban League, and competed in several Film festivals. And I also provide video support for the Oviedo Business Chamber of Commerce, Winter Springs Business Chamber of Commerce, Sanford Business Chamber of Commerce, through Gizmo Production, located in Winter Park, Florida, where I perform paid work as a camera operator, and an editor.
