My experience

I am an award-winning photographer with many years of experience creating videos and still images for broadcast television, corporations and nonprofit organizations. I have worked mainly as a cameraperson but also as a producer, director, and editor on many projects. 

My work includes everything from quick, small web projects to hour-long broadcast documentaries, and every conceivable thing in between. I am also able to direct, edit and produce, depending on the complexity of the project.
