Full time Grip Photographer Production Assistant Production Coordinator Writer

Personal Summary

I began in Hollywood working as a PA in 1995, and then a grip, working on various independent films before taking a job at Warner Bros as a Production Coordinator in their DVD department, on all Domestic and International DVD release titles starting with 'City of Angels', up until I left, with my final project being 'Matrix Reloaded'.

After dabbling in photography in 2000, as more than just a hobby on the suggestion of professional models whom I knew and had encouraged me to venture forth, I began building model portfolios and running a website on the weekends until I left WB and pursued photography full time in 2003.
