References as assistant / Career
I have a bachelors degree in Photography & Imaging from ArtCenter College of Design.
I started working as an assistant before going to school and worked consistently throughout.
In school I interned for David Harry Stewart where I gained a lot of on set experience on shoots for Red Bull and Forbes as well as experience working on a backlot at Universal Studios. I also spend time on the pre and post production side of things.
I have been a go to assistant for quite a few photographers. I also get many one time gigs with photographers from out of town, they often call me back when they return on subsequent shoots.
I also have experience working on film sets in all areas. I specialize as 1st AC but have experience as gaffer, grip, and PA. I have experience on large commercial sets. I frequently assist a photographer/director that uses me for all kinds of shoots.
I have a well rounded education in photography and film as well experience on a variety of sets from fashion to architecture, and action to product. I'm a quick learner and up for whatever is needed. I have great technical knowledge and am great at fixing things.
