Film Production

Film production for me dates back all the way to the late 1980’s, but didn’t really get serious until the mid to late 1990’s. I started with old JVC Camcorders and then moved to Super 8 and Super 16. I was lucky enough to make the leap to digital early and have utilized those tools ever since.

While I still direct and write films, I now mainly find myself leading the charge on productions as the Producer. I love connecting with other creatives and building teams for productions, then supporting those teams to help them achieve the ultimate goal of telling a good visual story.

Below you’ll find a short list of my work and the productions that I have been extremely lucky to work on.
