Over 2 decades of performing stand up comedy and acting in small, independent productions, I bring a wide skill set to productions with the ability to adapt and adjust with ease to last minute changes on set. With experience in Locations Scouting, Locations Management and Script Writing, I understand the needs of production departments and have assisted productions in a consulting capacity ranging from helping to source props and set vehicles to driving buses for locations scouting tours.

As an experienced and Cornell University trained photographer and experienced videographer, I have both a fully mobile photo studio with gear and full documentary / broadcast quality Sony Z280 Video camera system with a Manfrotto Tripod system, lighting and more. Available for on camera and as a unit stills photographer.

Further, with a vast experience in business management and operations, I can offer unique skills and experiences in addition to bringing needed props ad vehicles / equipment which most background performers are not. This includes a flat deck tow truck, 1, 5 and 7 ton trucks with dry boxes (moving trucks), forklift, scissor lift, bobcat skid-steer and more.

I am also an experienced professional photographer and DJ with fully equipped inventory for each of these areas.
