About

I have been a filmmaker for over 25 years, traveling the world and working on commercials, short and feature films, both narratives and documentaries. I'm a director of photography and have also produced, edited and directed several projects, working with both large and small crews, and for several projects even solo.

I find the latest advancements in the industry exciting and keep my equipment package current with the constantly evolving technology; however, regardless of how elaborate the rig or the size of the camera's sensor or sensitivity to low light, I know the most important elements of each shot still remain the same, such as good lighting and composition and justified camera movement.

Having begun my career in traditional film, my philosophy is that I am responsible for and my signature is on each individual frame. My motto is that there are no problems, only opportunities. My technique is to foster a fun environment because it forges a creative atmosphere for those in front of and behind the camera. Collectively, this is my style of work.
