I find the best way to foster the highest quality product is by keeping a positive and orderly set. I specialize in the theatrical and challenging setups and am happiest doing something unique or collaborating with an excited director. I have done nearly every job on set and can communicate efficiently with all departments. I've edited films and videos and understand what can be most useful for post-production. I believe I can bring value beyond that of a technician. My goal is to make the director's vision come to fruition in the time and budget allotted - doing it safely, and in harmony with the entire crew and production.
