About

I have over 23 years experience in all phases of video production and professional photography. I have created over 100 TV commercials and 1,000 Web videos for corporate, commercial and marketing purposes. I write scripts. I create storyboards and shot lists. I scout locations. I do casting calls and hire talent. I hire crews and have my favorite grips, gaffers, PAs, hair and makeup, wardrobe, etc. I light sets and locations. I know how to create moods and cinematic looks. I direct talent. As a DP, I am amazing with all kinds of camera and lenses. As a sound guy, I record professional, broadcast-quality audio. I am experienced in a live-switch environment and control room. As a post-production expert, I began editing on AVID systems, went to Final Cut and ended up with Premiere Pro. I do motion graphics with After Effects. I do color correction and color grading. I know how to get that last little bit of awesomeness out of footage. I am also a professional photographer with over 100,000 fashion photos in my portfolio. I can do a lot but I can also do one thing really well. I am an excellent team player and have that positive, can-do, get-it-done right, attitude on set while having fun and keeping it light.
