I’ve been working in the content creation world for the past fifteen years, with ten years as a commercial photographer and the last seven working with motion as producer and director. Between projects for my own clients, I also freelance for larger production companies as a client-facing production manager and post-production manager. I have substantial experience in the technical, creative & business aspects of content creation. I’m hired for my multi-faceted skill-set, organized & calm demeanour and, more importantly, my ability to stay on schedule and on budget.
