Biography

Educated at the University of Southern California and Southern Illinois University, this was followed an even more intensive schooling in the production arts as a Chicago based I.A.T.S.E. Assistant Cameraperson on such films as Home Alone and Backdraft.

The nineties was an amazing time to be a music video director delivering high rotation clips for bands such as The Black Crowes, Urge Overkill, White Zombie, Pantera and Anthrax. When MTV and VH-1 stopped playing music videos I turned my eyes towards music documentary and other video marketing tools. As an independent producer I have had the opportunity to tell the stories of legendary music creators, iconoclasts and dreamers - Glen Campbell to Sex Pistols and scores in-between.

The journey has also taken me into independent documentary across a spectrum of topics and unscripted television field directing. But no matter the subject, whenever I begin a project, before conjuring a single image I will always ask myself this key question - why does this matter? No project is successful until it can provide an answer with meaningful effect.
