I am a long time photographer who spent over thirty years as a Cinematographer. I've won numerous national awards and conducted workshops for the Local 600 Camera Guild, Kodak, and others. I was a long time teacher at the American Film Institute (Cinematography), Pasadena's Art Center College of Design (Cinematography), and California State College at Northridge. My father was a still phototgrapher and my grandfather was a producer director while my grandmother was a writer. I still mentor students and really enjoy it.
