Considered for the 2013 SOC award for operating work on Sleepy Hollow Season 1.
I am a local 600 operator based in Wilmington, North Carolina who enjoys the challenges of “a” camera/steadicam operating and consider it a privilege. I have a wife of 20 years and two children (Lily 16, Ivan 13). I am hard working; positive, creative and decisive. Going into each project, my goal is to enhance team work and to foster a respectful working relationship with all involved.
Based on the rehearsal I can determine which direction is best for the master, coverage angles and other possible options for economizing angles. I enjoy the intricacies of a tight close up as well as a compound move on either a fixed length or telescopic crane. I can discern when is the appropriate time to move the camera based on story, dialog and other circumstances. In addition, one of my strengths is the ability to work with a variety of personalities, allowing me to be successful in many situations.
