Short Bio: I'm a DP/Director based in Los Angeles. I'm currently working in the indie film industry with the ultimate goal to become a DGA director and ASC cinematographer in the future. I consider my skills versatile as i have shot a wide variety of things; from shorts to indie features, music videos, pilots, commercials, documentary, live events...etc. I always strive to give all my clients the 'cinematic' look and deliver a hassle free post workflow. I'm also familiar with RED Epic/VV 8k, Varicam LT, Canon C-series, DSLR/Mirrorless cameras.

A short film i directed 'The Heist' was accepted and screened at Cannes Film Festival 2014 in the short film corner. My other comedy short, 'Bong and Hot Sauce, premiered at Denman cinemas in Vancouver back in 2012. Personally I enjoy traveling, working abroad, shooting anything of interest, and experiencing new cultures. I primarily choose to shoot on Arri and Panasonic cameras because of their reliability, amazing color science and gorgeous skin tones. I'm also passport ready to travel outside of LA to work on international productions.

I'm always looking for more opportunities to serve as a Cinematographer or Director. However, i still do location sound on a freelance basis. It's fairly common for me to wear more than one hat on a production. I enjoy the process of film making and the opportunity to inspire others through cinematic storytelling. Below are my equipment lists that i use for most shoots; i'm able to facilitate shoots ranging from indie to higher end productions.
