I am a Director of Photography located in Atlanta, GA. Whether it's working with LED volumes, corporate or documentaries, flying drones in warehouses, all the way to music and dance, or breathing life into commercials or narrative pieces, I am here to get your project the best results possible.

In my home base Atlanta, I have an excellent gear package at my disposal, and offer clients multiple camera and lens options, lighting and grip packages, from single to multi-cam, direct to Zoom/Teams for offsite clients, gimbals, and drones. I am also an FAA Part 107 certified drone operator, working in shooting indoors and outdoors for Fortune 500 companies. I work nationwide, and can source any crew via my company Synchronicity Motion Pictures. 

 

I am a big fan of constantly pushing the boundaries, and never stopping one's education, in an ever-evolving industry. You never stop learning. No matter the age. Proudly educated by the some of the very best cinematographers in the world, with 5 X ASC Master Classes, including virtual production with LED Volumes.
