Profile Information

I have spent over 25 years working in the entertainment industry by performing many different job titles and positions. I started as a PA on local film shoots and worked my way up to grip, gaffer, and camera positions. The productions that I’ve worked on range from large commercial shoots for McDonald’s, The Learning Channel, Ford Motor Company, to smaller independent film productions. I have worked as a camera operator on numerous music videos for the band KoRn as well as shot, edited and directed a behind the scenes video for the song Way Too Far.

I have spent nearly 15 years working for the Rabobank Arena doing load-ins/load-outs and assembly for concerts and theater productions including sound, lighting, video, backline, etc. I am a member in good standing of IATSE local 215. I’ve worked on shows such as The Eagles, Brad Paisley, KoRn, Audio Slave, WWE Wrestling and Disney productions to name just a few. I’ve also operated cameras for the Rabobank Arena as well as worked with their Tricaster, Chyron & 360 System stations for the arena’s sporting events.

Worked for KoRn at their studio for 5 years under the direction of Jimmy Otell. I loaded/unloaded trucks, helped the sound engineer prep the studio for recording sessions, installed and maintained the building security system, took luggage and equipment to and from LAX when the band was touring, was responsible for looking after the studio and all of the band’s equipment while they were touring.

I am fully outfitted with my own professional tools and am totally equipped to perform technical production and performance services. I am also adept at fixing equipment and performing maintenance to keep everything running smoothly. I have an extreme eye for detail and a primary visual thinking process, which allows me to visualize situations and performances beforehand for functionality and to also quickly track down problem situations that might occur during operation and performance.
