Best way to describe what I do is I'm a generalist. My work as a storyteller began in newspaper still photography back in the late 80's when shooting film was the defacto standard. By late 2006, I was ready to tell stories visually, but I felt that I wanted a more compelling medium to tell those stories, and I wanted it in the voice of the subject, so I bought a microphone and digital recorder and eventually moved from stills only to shooting motion and stills in tandem with sound. I now produce storytelling projects for clients - with more of an emphasis on storytelling with audio slideshows and even making custom printed books.

"This was a great experience and so easy to do. We were able to stay open during the shoot and everything was explained well. We love our video and I'm so glad we decided to have it professionally done it's better then anything we could have created."
