I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay area where my interest in the art of imagery first developed with the hobby of still photography. At the age of thirteen that interest grew into a lifelong passion as I transitioned my focus to the moving image and eventually made the decision to attend film school and pursue a career in cinematography. I have worked professionally on numerous productions including short films, commercials, and documentaries. I have a strong background using a wide range of camera formats including the ARRI Alexa, Alexa Mini, RED Epic, as well as Canon Cinema camera systems but at the end of the day the camera is just a tool, what really matters is the story you tell and the lasting impact it leaves with your audience... that's what drives my passion.

A few of the clients I've shot for:

Mercedes-Benz USA, The California Highway Patrol, AT&T U-Verse, Velocity by Discovery, Getaround, and Munchery

Director of photography, camera operator, camera assistant, and first assistant camera
