Videographer / Camera Operator
Started shooting on good-old 8mm in 1997. Moved to HD in 2005. Have used too many cameras to list (not that it matters, any good videographer should be able to use any camera in just a few minutes). Have shot short films, sports, government meetings, live sports for broadcast, live to tape conferences and meetings, documentaries, and literally hundreds of commercials for local businesses (dentists, auto lots, pizza joints, sports teams, furniture stores, clothing stores, political ads, and even made a commercial with a bear). Have shot action-packed sequences, testimonials with soft lighting, in hospital ERs, in a news studio, in vineyards, green-screen, and while riding on top of a truck. Great experience with light and sound as well. Experience with steady-cam and jibs. Very proactive. Very resourceful. Enjoys creative approaches to shooting and coming up with new angles. Emmy Nominated in 2010. Worked as a Videographer / Cam Op for Corvaso, Remilon, NBC, AGP Video, VS Athletics, and worked as camera operator on too many short films to list.

Video Editing
Video Editing is probably the thing I am best known for. I was nominated for an Emmy in 2010 while working at NBC in San Luis Obispo. Check out my reel and some of my favorite works here!
Web Design
While I have not done it much professionally, I love web design and spend a lot of time fiddling with my own websites. Here are some examples of my work.
Mobile Apps / Flash
As far as I am concerned, Flash is alive and well, and I enjoy it throughly! I use Flash for most of my artwork in my cartoons, books, and even made mobile Apps. Visit my arcade/gallery!
I've always felt I was destined to be a writer on some level, and only recently have I actually started writing books. Even got me an agent! More to come!
Okay, I'm really not very musically talented. I don't even play an instrument. However, I have a keen ear and have mixed together a lot of great tracks for my movies and video games.
Video Games
I've always made mazes and stuff since I was little, not to mention a love for classic video games. Of course, this led to the creation of video games which you can play right here on my site!
Voice Acting
Since making a turn to cartoons back in 2005, I have practiced voice acting quite a bit. I have about a dozen voices I do for my various cartoons and am always searching for more.
