He quickly began freelancing as a cinematographer and has shot on both film and digital mediums. Several of his works have garnered awards and some published to online streaming sites such as Netflix and Hulu.

As a kid, the popular sci-fi and adventure films of 80's and 90's were huge influences and eventually guided him through fine art, photography, and finally  filmmaking.
