After taking a black and white photography class in high school I discovered a passion for capturing images that lead me to the film industry to be cinematographer.

Originally from Santa Rosa California, I attended Loyola Marymount University to study film production in 2010 and have been living in Los Angeles since then. 

While most of my work is in narrative I like to shoot all kinds of stories; Music Videos, Commercials, and Documentaries, all provide opportunities to connect with an audience visually and emotionally.
