Taken out of a community college in my hometown of Flint, Michigan at the age of seventeen to intern on a low budget feature gave me the chance to try my hand at several entry-level positions. My focus quickly narrowed to Lighting & Camera, which is where I have been having the time of my life for the last 28 years.
Lighting is my true love and calling. This industry has provided me with an interesting and healthy living full of one adventure after another, including the opportunity to become a part of Support Specialists Inc. Support Specialists Inc. is an owner/operator, Atlanta based, Lighting & Grip Rental Company established in 1986.
Feature films, commercials and documentaries make up the majority of my workload. I work as a Gaffer or Rigging Gaffer and as a Director of Photography whenever possible. Each one of these titles compliments the other and I look forward to all of them equally. As we all know, the scope & scale of each job tends to dictate our level of involvement.
I expect every gig to create another.
Coming up through the independent film market, as I did, has helped me understand how to efficiently utilize the resources available in any given circumstance. When goals & expectations are matched with budget & dedicated personnel great things do occur.
I can help you bring your vision to any screen of any size…you pick the format and I’ll help you make it pretty or ugly. You decide.
