About Me- because you can't photoshop video, muthafucka -
I'm a DP based in Hollywood, but am working everywhere in the world but HOME. You've seen my work on Apple commercials, Budweiser commercials, every EDC commercial, feature films, music videos, Playboy, TV.... The last year has been a whirlwind. I shoot all the madness for all of the Electric Daisy Carnivals (EDC) & Insomniac massives all over the world. Now shooting with Dr. Dre & Apple for Beats, Beyonce, Ice Cube, Straight Outta Compton, Jay-Z, PBS, Annie Lennox, Eminem, Lorde, Robin Thicke, Budweiser, Under Armour, Harley Davidson, DHL, Grand Theft Auto, 2 feature films.
I'm a fluid camera guru...steadicam operator who's converted to (and mastered) gimbals. YES, I can do 5 minute takes on a gimbal. I shoot entire EDCs on a gimbal, without support. I keep myself in excellent shape and can do shit other ops simply can't do. I get the shots they can't dream of getting, and I can do it all day. I own 2 Sony FS700 4K raw cameras, A7s 4K camera, A7sII 4K camera, Cinemilled-Modified DJI Ronin (for cine cameras), DJI Osmo with 4K X5 camera, DJI Inspire with 4K X5 camera, 3 Convergent Design Odyssey 7Qs, cine lenses, DSLR lenses, autofocus lenses, dollies, jibs, Steadicam, wireless follow focus, Teradek wireless transmitter, 3 Joker HMIs, 4 Arri Tungsten fresnels, LED light panels, modifiers, 12x12, C-stands, in a Mercedes Sprinter...I'm a fully functional production house in human, Scorpio form. I like to push boundaries. I show up first. I leave last. I stay awake til it's done. And my footage will make you jizz in your pants.
I don't give much of a fuck about my portfolio here...I'm not a stills photographer...I'm a cinematographer. You can't photoshop video, and it takes real talent to get that shit right...that challenge is way more appealing to me. All my port pics are old, old, old. You've already seen my work on TV and on the web. Check out the links below for some more of my work.
I work a LOT with cirque performers, aerialists, flow artists of all kinds...that's kinda my jam. I'm a bit of a flow artist with the camera...I like movement. I adore the human body. I'm a free spirit. I like people with similar values. I don't care how talented you are (or think you are), awesomeness trumps beauty every fucking time.
***TRAVELING TO NEW ZEALAND NOVEMBER-DECEMBER_NEED ACTORS!***
Shooting a pilot for a TV show in late November, early December, for an outdoor adventure series. Need some beautiful faces to get some epic, poetic shots around the Islands. This is a great opportunity for a potential role in what will likely end up being a globally-syndicated mini-series on National Geographic and Discovery! Contact me if interested, ASAP. Will be shooting between November 20-December 30.

I'm assembling a demo reel. Here's the first third of my favorite shots, loosely cobbled together. Final reel will be 3 minutes:
Everyone here is so damn talented and beautiful! It's all very inspiring and I look forward to working with all of you.
Don't ever hesitate to ask for a trade shoot. I'm always happy to donate my time when my schedule allows. Just ask.
I'm a director and DP for feature films, music videos, commercials, and corporate bullshit...payssss. I get sent to a dozen countries every year to shoot for some damn reason...hit me up and find out why.
I live out of an airport, basically. But SoCal is my "home"
I am exceedingly passionate in everything that I do...without my art, I'd rot. I'm a professional photographer and filmmaker, a musician, and an athlete. I'm obsessed with the human body and I admire, incessantly, its amorphous beauty, and am always looking for new, creative, and inspiring ways to capture the billions of facets of the body that make it so beautiful. I'm always looking to meet new models AND actors for stills and cinema. I am a consummate professional, I try to stick with natural and source light, and I'm impeccable at getting into my subjects; I love to find what makes someone look interesting and exploit the shit out of it...even if they didn't know if it were there. I hope to meet other art-obsessed, creative, passionate, compasstionate, and driven people with whom to work on cool new things!
I like edge. If you've got it, let's get to work. If you want it, I can help.
