I assisted from 2001 to 2006 on shoots for Neiman Marcus, Frederick's Of Hollywood, JC Penny, The Gap, Fox, ABC, Premiere, Flaunt... I know light. I still turn a pack's dial once in a while when the crew looks away.
In 2004 I started to Digi Tech here and there until it became my main thing.
I like to work from a laptop on a tripod for mobility and lightness but other setups are fine.
I also do color grading for motion and retouching
I enjoy spending time with my 9 year-old, surfing, snowboarding, golfing, watching football, basketball, soccer. Lots of dishes too. I don't like that. But the wife cooks so what can you do.
