All of my adult life, I have made a living with camera, my passion is imagery that looks natural and real. I am inspired by light that doesn’t look artificial, light that is beautiful and amazing, but organic.

Early in my career, as I was raising my first two children solo, I needed a job that I could work 9-5. I started my own commercial photography studio in downtown Seattle, specializing in food and product photography for advertising. Though I had become one of the top photographers in the state, I missed the moving image. I decided this was my opportunity to return to my passion, and get back into cinematography.

I sold my film still cameras, purchased a digital motion camera and moved my office into my house. Over the course of the next ten years, I filmed three feature films as the director of photography and shot documentaries in Sierra Leone, Honduras, Israel and across Europe. I filmed 24 narrative short films, many of which won awards for best cinematography.

I’m currently seeking to partner with directors and clients that are interested in close collaborative relationships, and telling compelling stories.
