Summary

Whether narrative or documentary, bringing stories to life is how I thrive. My primary role on-set is a DP or camera op, but I really shine as an editor. I work wonderfully with others, but have lots of experience being a one-man band when needed.

I worked closely with director Jason Rosenblatt to shape a visual style that supported the themes and limitations of the film, achieving a high-end "natural" look within a very low budget. Additionally, I supplied and operated the cameras and lighting gear used throughout the year-long shoot.

The pace was fast and we hit several locations per shoot, both indoors and out, all across Portland's dining scene. After being initially hired for a one-day gig, I was asked to return for two more.
