Education / Experience:

I hold a Degree in Writing, through the English Department of Texas Tech University, and a Minor: Telecommunications (Production) with heavy emphasis on Physics and Music Composition.
My studies in photography started in high school and eventually I studied Optics, Astronomy and Photography thru My University’s Mass Comm., Physics, and Art Departments.
Since I had already worked at Mtv Networks in NYC and on a location Feature Film in Indiana, I decided to concentrate on Writing Studies as a Major. I also worked as a cinematographer, gaffer, and grip in Texas while still in school. 

My Senior Project was to Write & Produce a set of three bi-lingual commercials for the Second Harvest Food Bank.  I raised $10,000 for my budget and the commercials played regionally for 12 years.

I moved to Los Angeles after graduation in 1991 and eventually joined the IATSE Local 600.  I have taken every possible opportunity to expand my craft through more education, special projects, post graduate studies, and of course lots and lots of shooting.

As I continued to shoot, I also Assisted other Cameramen, bringing all their knowledge and tricks in to my toolbox.  The 17 years I assisted proved to be the key to my ease and confidence on the set as a Director of Photography.

I have, additionally, worked in Media Training for 6 years .
I was also a Surgical “Technical Director” for 6 years.

I pride myself on my efficient, knowledgeable, and creative use of my Cine Tools, Crew, Equipment, and medium.

Feel free to contact me regarding questions about your production.

Thanks for stopping by.
