I'm a freelance cinematographer located in Los Angeles, CA. I graduated with a BA in Radio/Television from Southern Illinois University Carbondale back in 2009 and have been an Angeleno ever since.
I've always had a strong interest in lighting and camera work, but I haven't always been a cinematographer.
After my time in school I was hired by PlayNetwork, which is a out-of-home advertising company, as a motion designer. There I would build branded graphics for clients such as Hot Topic, Nordstrom, and Journeys to use in-store to create a unique environment as well as aid in increasing sales. After working with PlayNetwork I made the jump back into freelance. Since my time at PlayNetwork I've art directed several lyric videos, worked as a hybrid editor/motion graphics designer/cinematrographer at an ad agency and finally landed back where my true passion is... You guessed it! Cinematrogaphy!
My background in documentary work has provided me with the skills to work within any budget and deliver high quality cinematic work. Having spent the beginning of my career producing and in post production gives me the unique ability to understand the entire process and see problems before they arise keeping each project running efficiently.
Brands I've worked with include: Peet's Coffee & Tea, Penguin Books, Regal Cinemas, College Humor, Plum Organics, A2 Milk, MasterCard, MTV, IFC, Atlantic Records, Road Runner Records, PBS, Jive, and MapQuest.
I promise to respond promptly. If I don't I might be dead, call 911!
