Inspired by the films of Zemeckis, Ridley & Tony Scott, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Sidney Lumet, Frank Darabont, Ron Howard, & the writing of William Goldman, Shane Black, Quentin Tarantino (pre INGLORIOUS BASTARDS) Aaron Sorkin, & the cinematography of Roger Deakins, John Toll, Caleb Deschanel, Robert Richardson, Gordon Willis, Vittorio Storaro, as well as the music of John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith, Henry Mancini, Danny Elfman, James Horner, Alan Silvestri, John Barry, Vangelis, Harold Faltermeyer, Alan Menken & Elmer Bernstein, I went to film school at Columbia College in Chicago.
While I grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma wanting to be the best of the best with Tom Cruise in TOP GUN, I'm originally from Chicago & have the diet to prove it! Pizza, steak, burgers and kabobs are my favorites!
I'm a composer, turned photographer, turned actor, turned writer, turned camera operator, turned cinematographer, turned (failed wannabe) studio exec, turned back into photographer, camera operator & cinematographer, turned into an (almost) Emmy-nominated editor, turned into motion graphics & 3D artist, turned into sharer of all the things that I love to do.
I enjoy what I do, but probably the best & most important job that I'll ever have is being a husband to my wife & father to my two young boys.
