Staff Me Up

Welcome to my cinematography portfolio site (I made it myself!). I've been a professional cameraman for roughly ten years. I live in Los Angeles and shoot a lot of reality tv, concert films, and corporate web content.

My passion project is an educational youtube channel I launched in 2018 with an hour long science documentary about marine biology in Antarctica. It included a 6 week trip to Palmer Station and was funded by the National Science Foundation. I enjoy narrative work, but documentary is my passion because it gives me the chance to see things I'd never see otherwise.

After graduating from college, I spent four years producing online classes for Harvard Medical School. It wasn't the most exciting job, but now I have a lot of random knowledge about pharmaceutical drug development. I'm sure that will come in handy at some point.
