Awards & Achievements

• I have been a part of countless films that have received awards at film festivals and events across the country. Some of my own productions (where I acted as Producer, Cinematographer, Editor and/or Writer) have won dozens of awards, including Audience Choice, Best of Fest, Best Feature, Best Short and Best Editing.

• In 2011 I wrote, produced, shot and edited a short comedy musical called Rigamortis: A Zombie Love Story. This film has won many awards and screened at film festivals and comic/gaming conventions across the country including Comic-Con in San Diego. The film went on to gain the attention of a world-renowned digital film distributor, and is currently available on iTunes and other digital platforms.

• In my work as a Lighting Director for the White House and the Obama campaign, I have received several Certificates of Appreciation from the White House Communications Agency for my work lighting televised speeches for the President, Vice President and First Lady.
