Hi Ya’ll. Pretty stoked to be moving back home and getting to know the film/story community. I’ve been out west for quite a spell working on features and television/cable and now subscription-based content. I enjoy creating stories with others and on occasion kick out something original. Most recently I made a short animation film which is on Film Freeway. It’s made the cut at a few international festivals. Something I wrote to occupy my time during the pandemic. Also, I have a feature film I’d like to get rolling on when I get my feet planted again.

I grew up in Sydney, NS. My Mom worked at Kmart mixing paint and my dad dug ditches for the city. I swerved off and entered this foolish business via photography working my way up from 2nd AC to Operator/Splinter Unit DP. Been doing it for about 30 years.

I enjoy motorcycle travel, playing my accordion, good beer, better whiskey and razor-sharp wit.
