The short version...
I started in television/radio in 2004, working as a cameraman and audio engineer for PBS/NPR. During that time, I also worked for IATSE Local 115.
In 2010, I became a content producer for WJCT where I shot, produced, and edited segments for the 'Hometown' series and worked as both director and technical director for live TV.
In 2014, I was hired as a producer and post production supervisor for the startup, TV Jax. I also began freelancing as a motion graphics designer and VFX compositor during this time, working with On Ideas, Skeels Films, and directing a music video for the band Fit For Rivals.
In 2017, I was hired as editor and VFX compositor for the studio/marketing arm of GuideWell Connect. During this time I directed my first feature film, 'Cry For The Bad Man' and created the opening title sequence for the documentary 'Scream, Queen: My Nightmare On Elm Street'.
That same year, I was recognized by the city of Jacksonville's film & television office with the 'Rising Star' award.
In 2020, I moved to Newfold Digital where I do motion design, animation, and camera work. I continue to freelance and produce/direct original short films.
AS A DIRECTOR
I've directed a number of shorts and music videos as well as the feature film, Cry For The Bad Man for which I was nominated best director at the 2019 Rendezvous Film Fest.
AS AN EDITOR
I got my professional start as an editor working on WJCT's 'Picture This' in 2008 and I've edited every project I've produced since. I even cut the character reel for MTV's Siesta Key for Skeels Films.
AS A PRODUCER
I've produced a lot of TV and web content, receiving a Suncoast Regional Emmy in 2012 for the program 'Teen Talk' on PBS.
AS A COMPOSITOR
While I enjoy BIG visual effects, my best work is probably what you don't see. I've removed wires, camera dolly track, even an entire police SUV from a shot! I once removed a cat that wandered into frame.
