Cinematography | Direction | Art Direction & Design | Edit & Color | Motion Graphics & VFX | Listening
I grew up in a small town and have worked in the biggest towns. My parents are artists, printers, makers, and all around nice people. They taught me all that stuff. Surrounded by a darkroom, whirring rollers of offset presses, and endless art supplies created a fascinating childhood of dreaming and making images. The creative stuff is in my DNA. I’m right at home with a camera on my shoulder, working out the details with clients, or on-set directing a crew in the trenches. I can lead others, run with it, as well as collaborate. I’ve mastered a lot of tools and have a surprising number of skills. I’m a Mad Scientist. I’ve earned it. Art supplies, comics, and a healthy dose of movies and TV shaped me and my passion for telling stories with images. My history and experience in design informs the images I make. Where technology, artistry, and story collide is my happy spot.
I have 20 years experience as a cinematographer, designer, and content maker. Commercial, narrative, documentary, and branded content for film and television studios, advertising agencies, national brands, and other interesting folks is just the tip of the iceberg. I paid attention in school and have a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Kentucky. I have lectured at various colleges and institutions on design, media production, and how to successfully make things.
I’ve worked with: CBS/PARAMOUNT | PBS | HBO | FOX | DISNEY | MIRAMAX | STARZ | MTV | TIME LIFE | CRITERION | STERLING RICE GROUP | + MANY OTHERS
