As a prominent member of the film community in Nova Scotia, I spent years growing with the technological advancements happening at a rapid rate after my completion of film school in 2007. I was fortunate enough to be exposed to the early days of digital media and see the improvements in digital film making as it evolved. Because of that exposure, I was placed on nearly every digital shoot happening in the early beginnings as a result of my position as a Camera Prep Technician at Sim Digital rentals. Since then, I have been fortunate enough to work in a variety of positions within the Camera Department as a Digital Imaging Technician, Camera Assistant, Specialty Camera Technician, Camera Engineer, VTR/Playback, Colourist, Drone Pilot/Operator and more.

From prep to wrap, my main goal is to help production run as fluidly as possible wherever and whenever possible. Time saving alternatives while preserving a high standard of work has always been my goal and my work has shown so over the last decade. I fully immerse myself in tasks at hand and stay focused until said tasks are fully complete.
