DP / CINEMATOGRAPHER

I am an artist who is passionate about storytelling. I am a professional Director Of Photography (DP) and Camera Operator, specializing in MoVI handheld stabilization gimbal technology and other innovative camera moving tools. I have worked on feature films with Oscar winning actors, major network television series, a-list musician music videos, and national commercials for Fortune 500 brands. I am a member of the International Cinematographers Guild IATSE Local 600 Union.

MOVI / GIMBAL OPERATOR

I am one of the first MoVI Operators in the world. I worked with the early prototype versions at Freefly Systems when the technology was first introduced and now use the most current systems on the market. Whether you’re new to the world of handheld stabilized gimbal systems and looking to hire an operator for the first time, or a seasoned veteran DP looking to utilize advanced tricks of the trade, I can provide you with all the stabilized gimbal / MōVI services and information you are looking for.

UNDERWATER

I am a PADI Dive Master and Advanced Freediver who is passionate about the ocean, wildlife, and exploring the natural world. I enjoy working on natural history projects as well as commercial and narrative projects underwater. I have experience with a variety of cinema cameras and underwater housings and have traveled all over the world using them.
