    Insured, Licensed and OSHA Certified

    I am a live-event and TV Director with a career that started as a Emmy Award winning, live sports and entertainment cameraman with stops along the way as a DP, A1 and V1. I 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 system (see link HERE) What does all this mean? Not much in the grand scheme of life but if you are looking for network level, broad range experience and a live, broadcast trained Director for any size show or event, call me.

    About Us



    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 

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


     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!


    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.
