A shooter-editor-producer without the attitude of one
gHailing from North Carolina I grew up in a very artistic / musical family. My father played with the first touring group of the North Carolina Symphony when he was only 15 years old. My mother had a natural touch for painting and my 4 siblings were all creative.
After attending the North Carolina School of the Arts, I snagged as many production jobs possible starting out as a simple production assistant for various TV movies and theatricals such as The Lesser Evil. Shortly thereafter I dabbled in the acting community. After getting on board with an agency, I worked on a few Hallmark movies of the week such as What the Deaf Man Heard , The Lottery and Discovery series such as The New Detectives and Critical Rescue. I was fortunate enough to meet some great actors during this time like Tom Skerrit, James Earl Jones and Esai Morales to name a few... I'm kidding about Esai, not a big fan. In addition, I would work as location scout for various commercials and film productions like Mirimax Films, Cold Mountain.
After working on one side or another of the camera I moved into commercial productions and crept into writing / filming short experimentals and documentary style projects including a paranormal documentary called Carolina Ghostlore back in 2001 (before paranormal documentaries really took off...go figure). I always strive to expand my skills / storytelling capabilities by learning new technology while keeping track of the latest audio / video gear and software.
During my experiences I have accomplished works for major entities such as Mirimax Films, Discovery Channel, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, NBC Sports, CBS Sports, Spike TV, MTV, Viacom, AutoZone, ISOPON, Wake Forest University School of Medicine and more.
