I own  FWD Creative Content which does video and photography content for many platforms.

My primary skill set is Director of Photography. I also enjoys gaffing and owns a medium light package for an individual operator.

I have filled many roles on set including producer and director. I find my strength, when not behind the lens, is balancing the organization with the creative as an assistant director.
