About Me

     I am a Camera Assistant based out of Los Angeles and Ohio and I work locally, both in the Midwest, as well as in Southern California. My experience covers a wide variety of projects including commercials, documentaries, and narrative films. I deeply enjoy both the technical and artistic aspects of my work and have extensive experience with many different cinema cameras and accessories. Prior to working as a Camera Assistant, I worked for over 6 years as a Camera Prep Tech in various camera rental houses including AbelCine. This combined experience gives me a unique understanding of cinema cameras and accessories.

    When I am not working I am usually found doing something adventurous outside. I love hiking, camping, backpacking, off-roading, or whatever new experience comes my way. I am passionate about Timelapse Photography and find it extremely interesting and relaxing. I love being able to capture the 4th dimensional change in a landscape, knowing there is a particular beauty you can't capture in any other format. Often I hike to remote places, packing my timelapse gear, to capture the stunning beauty of a particular landscape. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to collaborate on your next project. I am more than willing to travel where ever is needed. I look forward to embarking on your next film adventure together.
