ABOUT
TOP QUALITY WORK - NO COMPROMISES

Screen Shot 2021-05-14 at 7.25.22 AM.png

I am an International Cinematographers Guild IATSE Local 600 Director of Photography located in Atlanta, GA. I work nationwide, and internationally, with a valid U.S. passport. 

I have built a solid reputation for top quality work, with top tier companies. Hard working, team player, with an excellent storytelling vision.


Experienced in multiple camera systems, with excellent lighting skills. Own and operate an ARRI Alexa Mini LF, 2 x Sony FX 9s, A7S III, gimbals and drones. Powerful , versatile and efficient lighting and grip, catered for any project. Excellent equipment to shoot anything from music, commercials, documentary, corporate, or narrative.

Studied under some of the best cinematographers in the world with 5 X ASC Master Classes, and a big fan of constantly pushing the boundaries, and never stopping one's education.
