About Me.

I trained as both an actor and director, obtaining a double-major in Theater and Film from NYU's prestigious Tisch School of the Arts.  While there, I studied at the Atlantic Theater under David Mamet, William H. Macy, Felicity Huffman, and Giancarlo Esposito, to name a few.  While still in school, I worked in the Art Department of Industrial Light + Magic on films like CONTACTMEN IN BLACK and STAR WARS: EPISODE ONE.  I also worked in production management for MTV Promos during peak 90s excess.  I also ALSO worked in the NYU photo department, the only non-major on the staff.  Somewhere in there, I co-wrote, co-directed, and co-starred in the Off-Broadway play SOMETHING IS HAPPENING.  I didn't sleep much back then.  In late 2001, I relocated to Los Angeles.  After a stint as an assistant editor and editor, on countless projects, at all hours of the night (I didn't sleep much back then), I transitioned to the camera department, working as a camera operator and/or DP on both single and multi-camera shows, films, and promos.  I am an Emmy Award-winning camera operator and member of the International Cinematographers Guild.  All this to say, my path has never been a straight line.

And I still don't sleep much.

Some Clients.

I've worked for a lot of different people in a lot of different places, from a blimp, to an aircraft carrier.

Clearly, I appreciate a good challenge.

Or I'm unwell.
