Shooting the broadcast reality/doc series “Dine Out Along The Road” in Los Banos, CA

I’m a cinematographer based in Central California, specializing in documentary, travel, and live music.

While I primarily work as a freelancer for production companies and marketing agencies, I also do a certain amount of full-service video production for small/medium-size business and nonprofit clients. In either capacity, I’m available for both local work and domestic or foreign travel.

I have nearly fifteen years of industry experience, having started as a live multi-camera director while still in high school and later working in broadcast news and university marketing before making the jump to full-time self-employment.

Non-cinematography interests include:

  • cinematography

  • lighting

  • cameras

  • taking photos

  • eating sandwiches

  • dark beer

  • what my wife calls ‘sad white-guy music’

  • maps of middle-earth
