I am a director, DP, editor and storyteller.
My greatest joy is helping a client realize and enhance their vision. Be it a clever thirty-second spot or feature-length narrative, I am always seeking to discover and visually express that which connects us as humans.
I've finished over a dozen feature films including four as director of photography and three as gaffer/lighting director. My credits include numerous commercials, industrials, music videos, short form narratives, and the 2008 Oscar nominated documentary “Operation Homecoming: Writing the Wartime Experience.”
I started in production in 1988 as a 3D
animator/compositor for a large architectural firm in
Houston where I received an intense introduction to
light, form, color, and composition as well as extensive
experience in visual effects, compositing, editing, and
directing. After a couple years as a freelance broadcast
graphics designer, I moved to Austin in 1995 to work as
a writer, director, and animator for Origin Systems, a
computer game developer. I became serious about building
a narrative film career in 1996 when I when I lit my
first 16mm film, “Mama Dearest.” In January 2006, I
retired from the game industry and became a freelance
director of photography full time.
Today, when I'm not busy fabricating
something out of wood or metal, I can be found on set,
framing a shot.
