Award-winning cinematographer based out of Western, Montana.

I grew up on a small farm in Western Maryland and at a young age spent more time fishing the small streams and farm ponds than doing anything else. By the time I was seventeen I found myself on the road to Western Montana with my parents, younger brother and sister. This move out west pushed me into the great outdoors for life and merged with my love of cinematography.

I have been in the filming community now for over thirteen years and have contributed footage to clients needing unique content for their vision and broadcast productions, from feature films with Steve Baldwin to Nat Geo's Ultimate Explorer, The History channel, Discovery and everything in between. My “anything is possible attitude” has helped me to win multiple video production awards in a variety of categories. I continue to strive for perfection using the latest equipment and technology an essential part of producing award-winning television programming. My travels are among the most exciting destinations affording some of the most sought-after images on the planet.

I have helped develop several shows that are currently running on Direct TV, Dish Network and Cable. Working as a Director of Photography and Producer over the last 14 years has prepared me for anything in the broadcast arena. I've field hosted, edited, directed and conceptualized many shows and national commercials spots. My experience comes into play whether filming dangerous game hunts in the bush of Tanzania or stalking Polar bears across the wind swept ice on the Arctic Ocean. When not filming I write feature length articles for Safari Club International, Bowhunter, Rack, Buckmasters, Petersen's Bowhunting, Hunting the Rez and Sports Afield magazine.

I love the outdoors and the natural world around me. I have been blessed with doing what I love and actually getting paid. Sounds crazy but if you can do what you love for a living and make a few bucks you are way ahead of the crowd. I love my family and live life to the fullest everyday!

Current project: Executive Producer of Skull Bound TV
