Director, editor, producer, camera op, and creative consultant

I originally went to college to study music, which I did, but ultimately found my true passion for film making, TV, theater, and production. But to get to know the man I am today we must go back to the year 1984...wait. Not here to talk about that, lets stick with the now. I currently reside in California where I work as a freelance editor and producer for commercial, television and digital productions. Before heading out west I was the director and editor for the National Daytime Emmy winning kids show Green Screen Adventures, produced by WCIU and nationally broadcast on MEtv as well as a field camera operator, and hired muscle, for the Emmy winning Svengoolie. I also served as a production director, editor and camera operator for the stations many television and commercial productions. I, like to think, I was an integral part of putting together and helping produce the Chicago Football Now Draft Special presented by Subway for the 2015 NFL Draft broadcast on WCIU.
Prior to my time at Weigel Broadcasting (WCIU, MEtv, MOVIES, DECADES) I worked for a variety of award winning production companies in roles such as production manager or project manager, senior editor or even assistant directing commercial productions and an award winning infomercial for AeroGrow International. The earliest years I saw myself working with another Emmy winning television show called Check, Please! on WTTW and getting the opportunity to shoot some concert films for the likes of Primus and Umphrey's McGee as well as local acts around town. During that early period I also was an additional camera operator for the documentary Revenge of the Mekons which premiered to rave reviews at the DOC NYC in 2013, then rolling out internationally over the following months and is now available on DVD through Music Box Films. And if all that, and more, wasn't enough I continued to be a strong presence in the Chicago theater scene working on over 20 productions with the likes of Oracle Theatre, Trap Door Theatre, Abraham Werewolf and Mary-Arrchie Theatre Co. to name a few. Before all that though, there were the two feature films I shot and directed along side Colby Hanik, the second of which, Envying Alice, went on to win the International Digital Video Awards for Best Feature Length Drama in 2004.
You can also find me through all the usual places, Twitter, IMDB, Facebook, etc.
