Insured, Licensed and OSHA Certified

I am a live-event video and TV Director, Video Producer, Music Video and TV Director with a career that started as an Emmy Award winning, live sports and entertainment cameraman with stops along the way as a DP, A1 & V1. I sometimes write, produce, handle crewing, handle logistics and whatever else is needed for the job at hand - after all, the show must go on!


I still provide engineering services on occasion, switch my own shows when it's appropriate and I own my own small-venue, multi-camera production package (see link HERE


What does all this mean? Not much in the grand scheme of life but if you are looking for a live, network-level trained, broad-range experienced Director that loves what they do (for any size show or event) call me.

About Me

CONCERT

Live, multi-cam one-offs and festivals are my specialty. Hundreds of credits and shows from Sting to Willie Nelson. Is your show budget-challenged? I can make 3 cameras look like 7 and 8 cameras look like a million bucks! Need crew? - I have connections to the best in the Seattle market and notes from 40+ years of global production experience. Gear - from switchers to jibs and more are just a phone call away. I travel too - Seattle is just an airport away. Don't forget about my producing chops too - I have self-produced DVD's and On Demand (OTT) projects - comedy, jazz and Rock n Roll

From the white-capped mountains of the Swiss Alps to multiple events for two Presidents.

CORPORATE

 Lens selection, operator skills, transmission, content presentation, timing and technical knowledge.... If you need a Director that can call large-scale, live events or studio projects or streaming, multi-venue projects in a mission critical environment that is dependable, experienced, resourceful, creative and fun - that's me. Poke around my corporate credits tab and see what experience I have that I bring to the party. 

From IMAG to Live Broadcast - 40 years of TV magic!

COMPASSION

I believe that every organization deserves the best production available. I have a passion for compassion, community, ministry and non-profit projects - especially fundraisers, auctions, etc. As a Producer for the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon for 12 years, I wrote, produced and edited feature stories, coordinated satellite transmission, booked studio, gear and crew as well as Directed the all-day live show.
