Personal Summary

I've got twenty years of experience in television production, ranging from documentary and reality programs to game shows and talk shows. I've been in the field, and I've been in post. I've shot everything from high-risk SWAT raids to opulent birthday parties for rich teenagers. I've done history, science, crime, food, travel, dating, home renovation—even the saga of JonBenét Ramsey.

I'm a skilled vérité cameraman. I can keep up with fast-moving stories and make sound story decisions on the fly.

I've run a number of series, giving me a solid understanding of format and structure, and the necessary skills to manage a staff of creative people.


I can make anything—ANYTHING—out of gaff tape.
