SKILLS
Creativity
Always excited to try something new and innovative. Ready to take on anything!
Camera
Over two decades of experience behind the camera, but one can always improve and learn more!
Lighting
Spent the past two decades learning motivated lighting. He works for hours to create a natural looking interview and scenes. This is challenging and always a learning process.
Directing
Learning more and more, but it takes a lifetime of experience to fully understand directing.
Producing
Organized, thinking ahead and ready for all the challenges that come along with any production!
Editing
Always edits with a team of editors as a director, but defaults to their experience. He loves to get into the timeline and work with scenes. He is experienced in both Avid and Adobe systems.
UAV/Drone Pilot
Became a pilot out of frustration. Many pilots do not come from a background in cinematography, so they lack the ability to create usable shots to build a scene for editors. Always learning with over three years of experience.
Team Player
Always learning to work better with a team and accepting of all the different people out there, but will not tolerate bullies, sexism, racism or bigotry.
Technology
Started working with computers at a very young age and ability to problem solve with the many challenges technology brings along with its innovation.
