I have shot and directed non-profit and corporate projects both locally and abroad for over twenty years. I have traveled extensively both professionally and personally, and I am passionate about cinematography and filmmaking.
I am comfortable handling all aspects of production (pre-production, directing, shooting and editing) either on my own or with a team. Working for travel shows and with my camera package has given me the ability to work independently, quickly with great flexibility and still be stylistically innovative.
One of my strengths is helping someone (an individual, an organization or a company) to “find their story” and then creating a vivid and compelling video around it. At the same time I always consider the practical and logistical needs of a business and its clients.
