I am a Cinematographer/Photographer living and working in New York City. I originally wanted to be an animator, attending briefly The Art Students League of New York in Fine Arts until I found my true interest in cinematography and decided to pursue it further. I then graduated with an AOS degree from The Art Institute of New York City in Video Production. While Attending AiNYC, I quickly gained a reputation as a skilled DoP and shot over 200 shorts, music videos, commercials, feature docu's, and art installation pieces. I am always studying and staying current with my craft.
