About Me

I have a degree in Broadcasting and Visual Design, 1989 and started working in TV in 1988. Before starting my own company in 1997, I worked for local TV stations in many positions including 1" commercial & long format editor, TD for live newscasts, director, commercial/promo producer and more. I did freelance sound recording work for a while and freelance editing on AVID & Media 100.

I now travel the Pacific Northwest shooting for many different organizations throughout the year and have gone to Montana and Texas on road trips. My associates and I work as locals in the Eugene and Portland, OR markets, while regularly traveling from Northern California to Seattle and from Coos Bay to Walla Walla. Of course we cover the U of O sports quit often and have worked with many high profile individuals such as President Obama, Sarah Palin, movies stars, CEO's and those less fortunate. We do live shots for all the networks.

In addition to my work, my wife and I enjoy birding and other wildlife photography. We have owned horses, Alpacas, Nigerian Dwarf goats and chickens and enjoy living on 10 acres in Western Oregon.
