about

Story, we all know it starts with story. A good story leads to a good book, a good radio show, a good painting, and a good film. It’s a simple concept but a very complex process, especially when applied to filmmaking. It requires collaboration, and whether by nature or nurture, I choose to collaborate by way of cinematography.

I didn’t begin my story telling career behind the camera. I began working on the stage, or at least behind the stage, lighting live performances. I transitioned to film and television and attended NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts carrying over my fascination of light from stage to screen. That fascination being the idea that a story is going on, the actors doing their work, the design team creating a space, the story unfolding, but if it’s unlit, it’s unseen, still there, but unseen.

Light molds how we tell that story. If you light half the story, you get half the story. I bring that mentality to all of my work, whether it be the shots chosen, the quality of light used, or movement created through camera. I am there to help translate and mold a story that already exists. Not create my story, but help bring a story to life created collaboratively. To shine light onto great stories that are happening and let them be seen.
