Better. Every. Time.
This is my personal mantra. Good shouldn't be the benchmark. Great isn't the goal. I will never be perfect, but I can always be better.
We all can.
// I dream in motion pictures //
I'm constantly looking at my world as if it's a film, imagining the best angle for every scene and moment. My wife makes fun of me, but I even see my dreams through camera angles, movement, and light. This began when my mother bought our first family camcorder when I was six years old. She didn't realize it at the time but she had changed the course of my life forever. The camcorder was quickly commandeered by my three brothers and I. We began filming magic shows, leveraging the cameras ability to alter reality and achieve the impossible. Soon we were making narrative short films and feature films with any spare time we had.
This hobby turned into a passion, which led me to film school, gaining valuable knowledge and technical training to begin honing in my craft. Since then, I've never stopped creating and striving to get better with each project. I've had the good fortune of Directing Photography on several commercial projects that have won and been nominated for Emmy's as well as shot Short Films that have showcased in Film Festivals around the Globe, including Cannes International Film Festival. However, I will never hang my hat on any accolades or laurels, I do not sit still easily and I know I can be better every time.
