I've been working in video production since I graduated college in 1986. My first job was as an AV flunky in hotels, setting up flip-charts and humping cable - it evolved from a humble start into a career as a videographer and producer. My first camera was a Sony M3A, which sat on your shoulder like a cement block and had glass saticon tubes and an outboard Sony 3/4" inch tape deck! My clients included aluminum siding swindlers who all went to jail and later small and medium pharmaceutical companies. I did a painful hitch during the in 90s recession shooting weddings. If I ever go to a wedding again...
After a multi-year break from video production (which included being a student in Buddhist Studies in the UK, staring at a wall for 10 hours a day in a temple in Burma, teaching English in Bangkok and working in an outsourcing firm in New Dehli) I began to experiment with producing and selling stock footage in 2008.
Since I no longer have clients as I used to know them, I don't have to write florid descriptions of my career here which may or may not be true. I never liked the business part of business, but I have always loved being a photographer! It continues to interest and engage me. I can travel the world and have something to do. I consider myself a lucky man. I make a living selling commercial stock video and as a videographer for corporate and news events.
I have an A.A. in Visual Communications Technology and a B.A.. I have occupied so many roles in the video food chain they are hard to remember.
Since 2000 I have lived in England, Guatemala, Seattle and Thailand. I speak an intermediate level Thai and can function in Spanish. I love good Martinis or even a Manhattan. Drop me a line if you are in Bangkok and buy me one!
