I am Cinematographer from good old Columbus, Ohio. Aside from working as a DoP, I’ve worked as a grip, best boy, gaffer and AC. I love working in G&E because there’s no better way to learn about lighting than getting getting down and dirty and learning from the people who make it all happen. I pride myself in my work ethic and am willing to do whatever I can to keep a production running smoothly, on time and under budget. I’m looking forward to working with you.
