I was born near the sunny beaches of Santa Cruz, CA where I spent my childhood close to nature, constantly traveling with my family. I later moved in land to a small town near Modesto, California. This is where I developed my passion as a filmmaker and eventually a cinematographer. What separates me from the rest is my constant dedication to the craft. Even when I'm not working, I take a small point and shoot everywhere I go to capture the way light interacts with the status quo. For me, constantly enhancing my skills in photography directly correlates into my cinematography work. Im able to take what I see from the real world and translate that into a controlled cinematic language.
