After completing film school in 1980, I began what developed into a very illustrious career in the commercial film industry.
My first job working as a production manager for one of the few bi-coastal commercial production companies, Sunlight Pictures Corp., brought me in contact with some of the most notable Directors in the industry. Melvin Sokolsky, a principal in the company was considered one of the top five commercial directors at the time. The roster also included Alex Fernbach, Jerry Shore and the first American representation of Ridley Scott and Tony Scott, all of whom proved to be huge influences in my life and my work.
After four years and a strong mentorship with Tabletop Director Alex Fernbach, I set out into the freelance world where I immediately found myself assisting two of the industry's most prominent Tabletop Directors, Elbert Budin and Santiago Suarez of Ampersand Productions. This began a three year stint and a very deeply rooted love of the Tabletop genre. With a strong desire and the discipline to do this type of work, a reputation began to flourish along with steady work from the likes of Michael Somoroff, Greg Ramsey, Phil Marco, Alex Fernbach, Michael Schrom and Irv Blitz, among others. With my experience, dedication and time spent working with these Directors as both Camera Assistant and Camera Operator I'm sure you'll see that my vision and approach to this type of work is evident in the spots on my current reel.
This new work showcases my ability in this genre. I am now bringing this experience to the commercial world as a Director/Cameraman.
