Director of Photography + Cinematographer
I am a motion media professional specializing in cinematography and motion graphic design with twelve years in the industry. My work has taken me to many continents, countries and cities over the years. The stories and people I have met during these experiences has unquestionably shaped my world view and creative eye. I am eternally grateful for this.
I love cinema. Watching "Raiders of the Lost Ark" at age six sparked my passion for film making at an early age and set in motion a pursuit to become a cinematographer. I have studied and practiced the art and techniques of film and video production relentlessly for over two decades. The dialect of cinema has become my primary language.
High school provided me four years of hands on learning with camera techniques, lighting basics and both linear and non-linear editing. During those years I was awarded several top national awards by the Journalism Educators Association, best cinematography in film festivals, and produced my first full length documentary.
My years at the University of Texas at Arlington's film program surrounded me with other passionate students and professors steeped with experienced wisdom. I cut my teeth shooting many short narrative films as my personal style developed.
After working at companies like Encore Multimedia and FUNimation over the span of eight years, and serving positions as an intern to a media director, I have jumped into full time freelance work as a cinematographer and motion graphic artist. This was a huge leap of faith and has been deeply rewarding. I am always looking for new projects and would love to explore being part of yours.
