Creating compelling storylines with memorable characters through intelligent teamwork – that’s my production mantra.

I’m a Montana-based freelance camera operator and award-winning TV journalist able to work on tight deadlines with both small and large crews. My professional experience includes shoots in Asia, Central America, and throughout the USA, including remote parts of Alaska and northern Canada.

I am also a member of the American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA), a PADI Divemaster, and a certified NOLS Wilderness First Responder.
