Skills & Knowledge

I am a filmmaker and I LOVE what I do. I have experience behind the camera with scripting, pre-­production, production, and post-production along with experience in-­front of the camera. For the most part, I situate myself behind the camera, but will never turn down an opportunity to share a smile on screen. 


In the field of pre-­production, I’ve had experience with all of it – budget, line producing, shot lists, shot breakdowns, location scouting, casting, producing, and talent wrangling.



On set, I have been a director, cinematographer, gaffer, grip, boom operator, and anything else that I may be missing. I’ve shot on the Sony FS5, Sony PMW-­200, and Canon XF300, all for over four years.


For post-­production, I am proficient with the Adobe Creative Cloud Software, most specifically Adobe Premiere Pro CC, Adobe Audition CC, and Adobe After Effects CC.


All of the above experience has been utilized in corporate video, short films, and documentaries. Not to brag, but I’ve nearly done it all and have a pretty good handle on how to make a movie. So, you’re in good hands when you invite me to join your team.
