I am a graduate of Loyola Marymount University (LMU) in Los Angeles. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Communications with a primary focus on filmmaking and cinematography. I have worn many hats in the film industry including camera and electric departments as an inroads to opportunities in cinematography. I also worked as a photo assistant shooting 35mm, medium and large format for many large profile clients. I eventually chose to pursue cinematography through my own work and allowing my learned knowledge and innate skills speak for themselves. I eventually found my passion for shooting narrative films, both short and long form and have had the good fortune to work with talented directors, actors, producers and others from around the world. Films I shot have been screened at film festivals around the world and one feature film was awarded best cinematography at a NYC film festival. During this time I also utilized my skill and knowledge as a cinematographer to photograph mostly fine art and more recently into portraits and product photography. I created and taught an intro to photography class to traveling students at a photo studio in Manhattan in which the students were able to create and composed their own images by the end of the workshop. I also created and taught an intro to filmmaking class to middle and high school kids in which I guided them through writing a script, shooting and editing the film along with many of the details that are involved in the process. I have loved the work that I do and find myself at a time and place where I want to share my knowledge and experience with others - especially middle and high school kids - who have an interest in pursuing that same passion and love.
