I fell in love with movies at a young age, absorbing every detail of every movie I watched to be retold to those unlucky enough to admit not having seen it. As a teen I became obsessed with the impact cinematography has on the story of a movie, always preferring films whose camera and lighting work took the forefront in communicating the emotion and story. After earning a B.S. in Civil Engineering, and a short foray into that profession, I moved to New York in 2011 to follow those early passions and pursue a career in filmmaking.
As a Cinematographer, I believe and embrace the philosophy that the lighting and frame of a film are chief in conveying story and emotion. I’m never satisfied with a single style so I relish the work of developing a unique look to satisfy the Director’s vision for each new project. Always striving to increase the beauty of each frame with every tool at my disposal.
I’m incredibly lucky and excited to be a part of the freelance film community in New York City. There are a lot of great DP’s in this city, however I believe my engineering background gives me an edge with the daily problem solving puzzles of filmmaking. My lack of structured film schooling allows me the mental and creative flexibility to achieve truly unique looks for every project that comes my way. I've had the pleasure of collaborating with companies like Maxim, L'Oreal, BeGirl, The Manifesto and am always open to making new connections in all branches of this industry.
