About me

I am a freelance filmmaker and wildlife photographer.  Over the past several years I have worked as a camera assistant on productions ranging from no budget indy films to broadcasted television series.  Through these experiences I have gained knowledge and hands on practice with of all kinds of professional camera equipment.  I have the technical know how to solve all kinds of problems, and a keen eye for setting up compelling shots.  When I am not working, I spend my time tracking animals through the woods and can be found hiding out in wait of photographic prey.
