We help you find your story and unique perspective. FILM PRODUCTION We're always interested in collaborating with other filmmakers to help realize productions. Our core team can exist at the center of the crew or surround an existing one – we thrive in the roles of Producers, Cinematographers, and Directors. EVENT PRODUCTION - MUSIC There are no do-overs with live events, the moment is there, and then it’s gone. Capturing the energy of a live musical performance requires technical competence, coordination, and teamwork to get it right the first – and only – time. We assemble crews and bring in the support staff needed to pull it off. EVENT PRODUCTION - BEHIND THE SCENES For certain events like workshops, festivals, conferences, and meetings – there can be an entire story just beneath the surface. Being embedded into these events as a crew allows to capture the essence of your event from behind the scenes. AERIAL CINEMATOGRAPHY Sky is no longer a limit.

I am a jack-of-all trades and I am finding my footing in the film/tv worlds that are expanding in the Hudson Valley. I have a home base in Kingston and New York City. I have 30 years of experience in news storytelling - first starting out as a still photographer and photo editor (for newspaper and magazines). But I opted to expand my skills into multimedia and video via a Master's degree from Syracuse University over 10 years ago. Since then, I have been producing, filming, and editing both short and long form projects for a wide variety of media outlets - mostly within various staff roles. I am now looking to shift to more tv/film work (especially in the Hudson Valley) and I opted to enroll in Stockade Works' Crew Boot Camp a few weeks ago - in order to learn how to work "on-set." I see myself embracing opportunities as a director, director of photography, assistant director, assistant camera.....even production assistant, as I learn more how crews work within tv/film. So at this moment, I am not sure what to call myself, but I know I would be a great addition to your team for any future projects.

My editorial assignments brought me to the attention of design firms and corporations and I began to shoot commercial work. I have gone on assignment in over 62 countries (including over a dozen around-the-world shoots) for many of the top global Fortune 500 companies, advertising agencies, NGOs and design firms. At present my work is split between shooting commercial photography assignments and producing/directing content for TV, NPOs, and corporate clients.
