After a few years in a muddled existence of post secondary education and another few years of just trying things out, I started work as a freelancer in the film industry. I got my feet wet in lighting & grip for projects such as The Bourne Legacy, and AMC's Hell on Wheels. I would shoot short films and independent features on the side in between jobs. I have been working as a Cinematographer for several years now and have learnt a lot along the way. I enjoy being a part of a variety of diverse projects and stray from focusing directly on one particular subject, style or genre. I have the confidence, knowledge and experience to bring stories to life with either what is available or what is required to facilitate the Director's vision. From small intimate creative projects to large full scale productions, no project is neither too big nor too small.
My true motivation in pursuing film has always been focused on helping shape culture through story. I truly believe that film serves an important role in shaping the future of humanity by offering viewers an opportunity to more diversely experience the world through a lens which can portray a vast variety of both human perspectives and experiences. Those shared perspectives and experiences carry on as inspiration to help us navigate through life's many quarrels and live in harmony.
Through the use of lighting & shadows, colour & tone, and space & movement I aim to employ my techniques to create an emotionally charged visual stage to place the art within a story.
