I am an experienced cinematographer and media content creator specializing in producing diverse, story-driven video content.

As an owner-operator I am well-equipped for documentary, commercial, corporate and non-fiction video production on location and in a studio. I’ve shot a wide range of projects in the last twenty years, including feature films, shorts, commercials, live music and a ton of documentary and corporate interviews. I can work solo or with any size crew, and I’m local from Seattle to Portland. In the Pacific Northwest I’ll bring my own state-of-the-art grip and lighting gear, and I’m available to travel worldwide.

Cameras with HD/4K/8K BRAW and PRORES up to 240fps
Lighting & Grip from Aputure, Nanlux, Matthews, Litepanels
Audio from Sound Devices, DPA, Countrymen
