About me

,In the 90s I began creating illustrations and graphics for various businesses. My interest in film and video production lead me to mostly approach studios and production companies with my illustration and graphics skills. This lead to work on production projects which helped me get to know and be known by tv and film producers.

​

Eventually I was asked to edit a video (I had learned editing at home on a free version of Avid called VideoShop) and they loved what I did and I enjoyed it. I got more editing jobs with still doing illustrations and picking up photo retouching skills and designing logos, all from working with local studios in Tulsa Oklahoma.

​

One day I was asked to help out behind the camera for a tv show covering a Central ProAM Bass Tournament on Bull Shoals Lake in Harrison Ark, this was still the 90s. I was credited as assistant director and they told me I had talent. I loved it! I got more behind the camera work and still more illustrations, photo retouching, graphics, editing videos and work as a cameraman, but along the way I kept taking positions in other fields to make a living because I had to.

​

Today I fly drones, take aerial photography, aerial cinematography, I grip on films (I've been on the set of a Casey Affleck film and credited in two other films, one starring Casper Van Dien from Starship Troopers fame), my work has been seen on ESPN & ESPN2, NBC, DiY Network and on the pages of Better Homes & Garden and Community Spirit magazine (a local Tulsa publication), I create characters, I can animate them, I design logos, I can design any print collateral but I mostly produce videos for clients social media sites, websites, youtube and television.

​

I am an Okie, born and raised close to Tulsa OK and for over half a decade I have lived in Central Missouri, Ozark country near the Lakes area of Pomme De Terre,Truman and Lake of the Ozarks where a lot of my work comes from in covering boating and fishing related events. I also do weddings and would like to get into some theatrical productions, music videos, etc.
