A bit about me.
I got my start in 1999 as a production assistant for NBC's 'Saved By The Bell', and 'In The House' with LL Cool J. Later that same year, while attending a filmmaking class at UCLA, I met the founders of the Slamdance Film Festival and soon after I was flying with them to Cannes and Park City as their festival coordinator. After that came Miramax Films, where I provided coverage and recommendations for screenplays—some of which went on to become Oscar-winning films—submitted by the top writers and talent agencies.
Following a long, life-altering trip to India, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Egypt, I returned to my native Bay Area in 2001, where my partner Cheri and I combined our skills and passions to start multimedia production agency Conscious Creative in San Francisco. Over the past 15+ years, I've been a director, cinematographer, shooter/operator, writer, editor, producer, creator, cinéaste, long distance runner, husband and father. I’ve had a front row seat as the industry has moved from film to digital, from 480 to 8K, and have been intimately involved in a diverse range of productions. My at-times award-winning work has been broadcast on TV, on the web, and has screened at prominent and obscure film festivals worldwide.
In addition to my regular shooting and directing gigs, I’m currently continuing production on Lovers & Others, which most recently screened at the San Francisco Web Fest. It's an episodic dramedy about marriage, spirituality, and the nature of commitment.
