Dynamic Director and DP since 2013 recognized for creative leadership and artistic innovation. Recipient of the 88.9 Radio Milwaukee 2015 Music Video Of The Year award. Successful at bringing out the best in the cast and crew. Terrific leadership skills and a strong ability to make executive decisions regarding pre-production, production, and post-production. It is most important to me that every client of mine feels beyond satisfied with their final product; I will work on a given project relentlessly until the client's satisfaction is fulfilled. I've been given the opportunity to film in locations including New York, Kentucky, Oregon, and Texas and plan to increase my experience as a traveling filmmaker.
