I am a pragmatic dude with a midwest work-ethic who knows a ton about cameras and production, but is always trying to learn more. I'm Wikipedia reader, in-line skater, and a cat-lover. I am married to the love of my life; we play cribbage, and go for a walk every day unless I am traveling for work. I work as an election judge, I do my best to treat everyone I meet with dignity and respect, I root for the little guy, and I occasionally enjoy a good low-land Scotch. I am a life-long story-teller, joke-cracker, and class-clown.
For more than a decade, I have been fortunate enough to all the stuff you see on this website my job. It has never been easy, but it has also never been boring. If you ever run into someone who is luckier than me, please send them my way. I would love to meet them.
I would also love to hear about you, what you are working on, and how we can collaborate. Let's shoot something!
