I graduated with the Course Directors Award for Film and Video Lighting from "Full Sail" where I received an Associate of Science degree in Film and Video Production.
After school in Florida I came back home to Wisconsin and landed a job at a local production company where I did everything from sales, shooting, lighting and editing to duplication and delivery.
After a couple of years I decided to go Freelance, I had a passion for lighting and it's really where I wanted to focus my time and attention.
I was lucky enough to meet and work with a local Gaffer who taught me so much more about the trade and craft than I ever knew existed.
Since starting off hauling sandbags I have worked as a Grip, Electric, Key Grip, Best Boy and Gaffer. I have come to appreciate more and more not only the physical and technical aspect of this career but also the artistic outlet it provides.
I have been in business since 2000 and in that time I have had the unique opportunity to work with many Gaffers and DP's throughout the industry, and world, picking up all kinds of lighting tips and tricks along the way.
I am based out of Madison Wisconsin in order to be near near my family and friends, however I have worked on sets and lit talent from California to Germany.
I know I still have much to learn, but in the pursuit of perfection, in any given field, are we ever anything more than students?
I look forward to new challenges, meeting new people and making some beautiful pictures along the way.
Thank you for your time and interest in my passion, and my business, and please allow me to return the favor on your next project.
