Light and Location - it's what lends authenticity to the moment, and allows the audience to be immersed in what they're seeing on screen.

As a cinematographer, I work within the languages of lighting and camera movement to give character to the script and events unfolding on screen.

I've filmed a wide-range of content - from short narrative films to feature-length documentaries, international TV pilots to informational promotions for corporate, nonprofit and government clients.

The Funeral (Short Narrative Drama)
Liberty Road (Short Narrative Drama)
The Loudest Show On Earth (Feature Documentary)
Man With A Bolex Movie Camera (Short Narrative Comedy)
