About me

I am a Los Angeles based Camera Assistant. I deeply enjoy both the technical and artistic aspects of my work. My experience covers a wide variety of projects including commercials, documentaries, and narrative films. I have extensive experience with many different cinema cameras and accessories. Prior to working as a Camera Assistant, I worked for over 6 years as a Camera Prep Tech in various camera rental houses including AbelCine. This combined experience gives me a unique understanding of cinema cameras and accessories. When I am not working, I enjoy all kinds of adventure, including hiking, camping, backpacking, off-roading, or whatever new experience comes my way. I grew up traveling and making videos of my adventures; this passion continues through today. More recently, I have passionately discovered time lapse photography. I love being able to capture the 4th dimensional change in a landscape, knowing there is a particular beauty you can't capture in any other format. Often I hike to remote places, packing my time lapse gear, to capture the stunning beauty of a particular landscape. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to collaborate on your next project. I look forward to embarking on your next film adventure together.
