What's up! I am based in Brooklyn, NY. 

A few things about me:
I am a DP; but also a Gaffer and Key Grip. 
I most recently shot Frogtown, a narrative-documentary feature that highlights the weird and wonderful residents of a small town in North Florida. 
I've worked with director Antonio Méndez Esparza [2018 John Cassavetes Independent Spirit Award] on three documentaries highlighting Florida's Early Childhood Court System, as DP and editor. I love documentary just as much as I love narrative.  
In 2019, I won a Student Emmy for my short documentary Woman of Steel, which highlights Ashley Young's life as a self-proclaimed human cyborg with a bionic right arm.  
I love taking pictures of my friends when they're not looking. I love my Ricoh GR. 
Outside of film life, I spend most of my down time on languages; I speak French, and am working hard on my Spanish. 

My gear is part of a larger 2-ton package at Shade Leaf Lighting Company. We share a space and are great friends.
