About Me

Let me hit a few highlights before I get into the film stuff. Let’s see… I grew up in Kentucky in a very small town where my dad was a farrier. I was an only child but was always surrounded by animals. I worked in the Virgin Islands before going to college. I might have stayed in that island paradise forever had I not gotten into Florida States prestigious Film School. I cannot brag on my alma mater enough. FSU provided hands on training in the film industry with extremely small class sizes from amazing industry professionals. While in school I met some of my best friends and continue to work with many of the students from the program today including director Aaron Moorehead.

Immediately after graduating I moved to Los Angeles, having never visited the city before, to begin working in the film industry. For the first year I worked as an office manager and creative executive assistant at RKO Pictures. I learned a lot as they rebuilt their distribution business and developed their slate. After deciding I wanted to work more in the field I went on to office PA on a Nickelodeon TV show and movie after which I was a post PA for the movie and then another TV show. It was another great education to watch a TV show and a movie go from the true beginning all the way through post.

The one thing that had stayed constant throughout my time in L.A. was my love of the camera department. I was shooting whatever I could whenever I could. I made the jump into full freelance as a camera professional and have never looked back. Over the past thirteen years I have built up my resume, clients, and gear. I have gotten to work with some of my idols and go to some amazing places a small town kid from Kentucky never even imagined. I am a member of local 600 and NABET. I split time between Cinematography, Steadicam, and camera operating. I have camera, grip, lighting and sound packages and provide a lot of the gear for the shoots I am on. Whether it is a major motion picture, a children’s TV show, or a small music video I give every job I take my full attention and talent.
