I always had a fascination with telling stories as far back as I can remember.  In the third grade I even organized a puppet show for my class with an original script that had four characters.  It was a hit with the students and once I got that first rush, I never looked back.

I eventually exhausted
all movie and TV work in my hometown of Kingston, NY and realized that I would have to leave to continue my career.  I enrolled in the Film Department at Brooklyn College in 1996 and started working with film.  The price and quality of video kept me working with film until the early 2000’s.  Today, the format I shoot with the most is digital video.

When my schedule allows it I teach various workshops in New York City ranging from camera basics to lighting, audio and advanced camera techniques.  My training is in narrative cinematography but I've had lots of experience shooting commercial.  I've traveled all over the United States and several continents abroad.  After all of this, one thing remains the same, I still love to tell stories.
