Background:

A little information about me:  I am a unit still photographer and a member of the Cinematographer's Guild (I.A.T.S.E. 600) currently based in Los Angeles, California.  Before becoming a unit photographer, I started off in the film and tv industry working in production and post production on "Devil's Advocate", "Titanic" (working nine months in post production on the film and three of those months at SkyWalker Sound in northern California finishing final sound and editing on the film), and "There's Something About Mary" beginning as a production assistant/ assistant to producers and eventually working my way up to become a production supervisor for scripted programing and a unit production manager on documentaries.  I was born in Newport Beach, California, but grew up primarily in Miami, Florida (on a little island called Key Biscayne), attended high school outside of London, England, and eventually moved to Dallas, Texas, to attend and graduate from Southern Methodist University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications.  I have photographed Rupert Murdoch for 20th Century Fox as an exclusive for The Wall Street Journal, former Vice President Al Gore as an exclusive for "Current TV" when he launched the network, Lady GaGa as an exclusive for Entertainment Weekly for "The Simpsons", and traveled to London, England to photograph Daniel Radcliffe as an exclusive for Entertainment Weekly for "The Simpsons" as well.  During 2015-2016 I had the great honor of photographing the series "The Muppets" for 14 of the 16 episodes that were shot at the Walt Disney Studios for ABC and working with the Henson Muppeteers for six months.  I currently rotate between and shoot all of Shonda Rhimes's shows for ABC as a unit photographer and just completed shooting Season 2 of "Hand of God"  for four and a half months for Amazon Studios.  I have also photographed close to 100 of the world's best chefs for key art and episodes of "Top Chef Masters", "Top Chef Duels" and "Recipe for Deception" for Bravo including Wolfgang Puck, Curtis Stone, James Oseland, Hugh Acheson, Takashi Yagahashi, David Burke, Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger (to name a few). In addition to shooting on set, I have shot events for Best Events for the past 11 years as well as Jeffrey Best's personal family photos and personal family events for 11 years.   I can live and work as a local in Los Angeles, Miami, Austin, Dallas, Houston, and London, England.
