Living in Detroit free lancing in the film/commercial industry as an AC and DIT Focusing on tape-less work-flows and data management. I graduated from Northern Michigan University with a degree in Media Production and New Technology (Broadcasting) with a minor in Art and Design. Looking to someday move up to Director of Photography.
While working with Axcept Media in Minneapolis, I was able to produce content for companies like Verizon, 3M, Rubbermaid, Gap, Merrill Lynch, Home Depot, Office Depot, Bank of America and others. My main duties there were to coordinate the shoots- hiring talent, booking the studio, and working with vendors for equipment. During production I wore a lot of hats, taking on a majority of grip and gaffing duties as well as DP and Camera Op for all the shoots. In post, I would key the footage and compress it to Flash Video.
Aside from mainly working on cooperate and commercial films, I've also been helping with short films. Most recently as a 1st AC or DIT. And now that I live in Michigan, I hope to transition more out of cooperate and industrial, and get more into films and commercials.
