I’ve spent my life telling stories through images and sound. It started when I was 16 doing the surf report for several San Francisco Bay Area radio stations. At 18, I took things a bit more seriously and began my news reporting career at KMEL in San Francisco. I later worked my way through college as the morning news anchor at KPAY and received my BA in Communications. Taking the next logical step, I worked as a television news reporter and anchor for a CBS affiliate in northern California. I found this was just a bit too serious, so I shifted gears and spend 15 years as a commercial video producer directing, shooting and editing more than 1550 radio and television commercials and long-form marketing programs. With this media and communications experience I took a very fulfilling side-trip spending five years directing media and advocacy projects for the American Lung Association of California. But when the publisher of Videomaker magazine offered me the opportunity to become Editor-in-Chief, I couldn’t resist and spent two energizing years directing the editorial content of this popular national media publication. But my love for being behind the camera drove me to finally start my own production company in late 2007. I now produce commercials, short form documentaries and training and promotional videos for clients that include, Pacific Gas and Electric, Mitsubishi Electric, California State Parks, Perpetual Power, Sacramento County Water Resources, Shopsmith, Inc., and others. I am also a certified Steadicam owner/operator and video training consultant.
