Born and raised in New Jersey, I served four years in the USAF prior to enrolling in college at William Paterson University where I received my BA in Communications with a concentration in Media Production. I discovered my calling as a Cinematographer while in college and worked as a Director of Photography on my first feature length project the summer after graduation. I received my MFA in Media Production / Cinematography from CUNY City College of New York. Since then I have been working steadily as a freelance Cinematographer.
With hundreds of commercials, dozens of short films, music videos, and documentaries, as well as several feature length projects under my belt, I have gained a diverse portfolio and a reputation for being able to shoot anything that comes my way.
I currently have three short films doing the festival rounds, am in post-production on a sci-fi horror feature, in pre-production on two other feature films, an ongoing live comedy and music series, and an assortment of short films. I also teach film-making part-time at my alma-mater, William Paterson University, and work part-time as a Lighting Director at MSNBC.
