Sunset Panorama

17+ Years in Digital Media

I fell in love with the camera when I was 15 years old and I never really put the camera back down. The camera has taken me to frozen Salem, MA to Sunny Bermuda to windy Chicago, to New York, Beautiful SLO, Lake Tahoe, Northern California, arid Arizona, Cool Nevada, flat Ohio and all across this beautiful Nation of ours. I have had the pleasure of working for Godfather Films, the County of Riverside EDA, Stater Bros, NY Comic Con, Buzzfeed, Lightworkers, and Refinery 29 to name a few.

I have been fortunate enough to have worked on movie sets, documentaries, County Events, live streams, Life Events and just about anything you can point a camera at.

I met the Cinematographer Dean Cundy (“Who Framed Roger Rabbit,” “Back to the Future”) and he called me a “tech weenie,” that was a great day! Point me in a direction and I will shoot. Lights, Camera, Liftoff!


My focus has always been the camera: great composition and lighting are crucial to set up the rest of a production.

Live Event Experience

From live streaming to weddings I am in my element in a one take environment; whether I am setting up or troubleshooting I wont crack under the pressure.

Great Customer Service

I have worked with all kinds of people: corporate clients, production managers and retail clients.
