Throughout my adult life, my livelihood has been dependent on my cameras, as my passion lies in capturing images that are genuine and organic. The beauty of light that appears natural and uncontrived, serves as a constant source of inspiration for me.
During the early stages of my career, when I was raising my two children alone, I needed a job that allowed me to work a typical 9-5 schedule. As a result, I established my own commercial photography studio in the heart of downtown Seattle, specializing in food and product photography for use in advertising. Despite becoming one of the top photographers in the state, I found myself yearning to work with moving images again. This led me to make the decision to return to my true passion and re-enter the world of cinematography.
I sold my film still cameras, acquired a digital motion camera, and relocated my workspace to my home. Over the next decade, I worked as the director of photography on three feature films and captured documentaries in diverse locations such as the U.S., Sierra Leone, Honduras, Israel, and across Europe. I also shot 24 narrative short films, many of which received recognition and awards for their outstanding cinematography.
Currently, I am actively seeking opportunities to partner with directors and clients who are interested in building close collaborative relationships telling compelling stories.
