Demo Reel

Below is a sample of some of the projects that I’m proud to have been a part of. I performed work on these projects primarily as a sound recordist, but have included footage where I assisted the production as a lighting technician and grip. I generally do whatever I can to help when the situation is appropriate, be it operating a generator or moving one to a better location for sound. I also have a Class A CDL and can operate most equipment if the need arises.
