I have produced videos and shot photos for

live events, live sporting events, documentaries, corporate
commercials, infomercials, low budget television shows and more...

 I am outgoing, have great communication skills, understand the importance of
meeting deadlines and have an extremely diligent work ethic; probably
because I absolutely love creating and producing video/photo content
