My background includes a degree in photojournalism from the University of Kansas, and extensive experience in the film industry where I worked as a camera operator and director of photography on many commercials and feature films. In particular I was called upon when the camera needed to be shot while skiing down a mountain, or skating on ice or pavement. I was a principal creative in the heyday of the Greg Stump ski films and MTV Sports. My work can also be seen in the feature films Mighty Ducks 2 & 3, Mystery Alaska, MotoCrossed, Johnny Tsunami as well as the "Team Tiger" Frosted Flakes sports oriented commercials.

I spent several years as a ski instructor in Colorado, was the marketing photographer for Vail ski area, and was a principal photographer for SKI Magazine.

Recent clients include: Volvo, Kia, Genesis, Maserati, BMW, Honda, FENDI, Nissan, 000 and EUROPEAN CAR Magazines. I shot both still and video assignments (which I also edited) for ROAD & TRACK Magazine, until they moved from Southern California to Detroit.

Favorite activities include skiing, Taekwondo (blackbelt), and travelling the world with my wife and son. I love what I do, and have been told by more than a few clients that I'm a bit relentless in going after all the shots.
