I've been working in film for 25 years. Throughout that time I've been both a generalist and specialist, working as an editor, 3D animator, visual effects artist, post-production supervisor, colorist and director. I was mentored in college by the very talented cinematographer and director, Mike Rivard. Over the years I've had the opportunity to work with a motley assortment of directors that include Dario Argento, Prince, Steven Soderbergh, Shawn Christensen, Josh Sternfeld and Ben Stiller. My goal is to some day get them all in the same room just to see what would happen.
As a colorist my closest collaborators are often cinematographers, many of whom I count as close friends and work with often. David McLain, Daniel Katz, Trevor Tweeten, have consistently created work that is brilliant and ground breaking. They inspire me and challenge me. In it's purest form and it's best, I see my colorist work simply as a continuation of their cinematography.
