Question 1

What Inspires You in your Role?

Cinematography is a perfect union of both problem solving and creativity. It's both a very technical and creative job that flexes both of my passions. Combining the two and knowing that there is always more to learn and explore inspires me. That, and capturing once in a lifetime shots!

Question 2

How do you stay inspired?

Learning about the latest filmmaking technologies and techniques that are changing how we tell stories and, in turn, how to utilize those for my own jobs. Music, movies, shows, video games, pop culture in general inspire the creativity in me too!

Question 3

What's one piece of advice you wish someone told you when you first began your career?

Perfection is the enemy of great.


What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

Hang out with my wife and dog, read, watch movies, play board games / video games with friends, and develop my own indie video game.


What's your favorite movie of all time, and why?

Step brothers. I will never not want to watch this movie. It's absurd, appalling, and has so many quotable lines. Dare I say, a perfect film.
