This is more than a job. It's a front-row seat and backstage pass to people and places around the country and across the globe. I love it.
And I'm always looking forward to teaming-up with folks who share a passion for compelling visual storytelling. I especially enjoy working creatively and efficiently to create beautiful cinema-style shots for interviews for corporate videos and documentaries. And capturing supporting visuals with today's tools is a blast; my goal is to capture clean and smooth video that supports the story. And it's fun to meet the challenge of choosing the right camera, slider, gimbal, etc, to get all the right shots for each project. Want to learn more about me? There's more on the ABOUT page.
