What I believe:

Images allow us to connect deeply and quickly with others and I have been connecting people with images for two decades. I have the great good fortune to travel the world in search of great stories…and tell these stories on video and film.

My work includes documentary, drama, lifestyle, commercial, music, corporate, still photos. 

My work is my passion and I’m clear about that. A good image, a good story, has to hit you in the heart. It also has to stand the test of time.

As a member of a story telling team, I bring deep technical expertise, life experience and that elusive spark…a dedication to my craft and calling.
