Who Am I ?

I am currently employed as a Director at Cultivate Studios in Chicago, IL.

I’m passionate about storytelling, and creating. Whether its directing, or shooting I love the process, the work, and the reward.  Creating is a long arduous task to work towards and achieve, but the rewards are unrelenting. What is that compels someone to work long hours sometimes with little sleep or food, working in cold or unforgiving circumstances, waiting patiently for the moment when the light plays perfectly in the right spot? Passion for the craft. You must work hard to hone your craft, a constant student of your subject, always ready to learn  never willing to quit, the first one on set, and the last to leave, a diligent hand ready and willing to work. You must be willing to take and give advice, provide leadership by example, extend and receive respect. This is my job, and I love it!

Cinematography is infinite in it's possibilities, more so than music or language.
