I began my love affair with filmmaking when I was 11 years old and recorded my first moving images with my buddies. Creating and watching those films was pure joy. Eventually, I headed to Columbia College Chicago to study Film Production with a concentration in Cinematography. During school I was able to work on several major motion pictures, national commercials, live sporting events, and even landed a highly-coveted internship at CBS Studios in Los Angeles.
Upon graduation, it became clear that production work in Chicago was inconsistent so I decided to make my own opportunity. This is was when Poetic Productions was born.
My passions have grown since I was a young boy and I have an even bigger love these days as a father and husband. Being able to live my dream of being a cinematographer while providing for my family is a pleasure beyond words.
When I am not capturing life’s greatest moments or playing with my kids you can find me kicking back with a rare craft beer or a piping hot cup of coffee and chatting with a friend. I enjoy listening to people as much as I enjoy telling stories. I would love the opportunity to meet you and tell yours.
YOU PERFECTLY CAPTURED EVERY SINGLE IMPORTANT MOMENT AND THE OUTCOME IS BEAUTIFUL.
I’m looking forward to learning your story
