Performing Arts Credits:
Supervised video production of concerts by: Bad Company, Night Ranger, Boyz II Men, (and others) for cable and broadcast distribution in Japan.

Served 7 years as a civilian Supervisory Broadcast Specialist with the Department of Defense in Asia.

Scripted and produced hundreds of TV commercials, psa's and long format video productions for distribution to Military bases and Marine Corps facilities.

Internet posted music lessons by such stars as Joe Satriani, (rock), George Benson, (jazz), and Mercy Me, (Grammy winning Christian rock band). On these shoots I acted variously as Technical Director, Director of Photography, Floor Manager, and/or Lead Camera Operator. The Satriani and Benson shoots were done in HD. Many examples of my recent work can easily be viewed by searching "workshoplive" on YouTube.com


My independent film "A Coaching Tradition" was entered by invitation to the Berkshire International Film Festival in 2007 and I served as a location videographer and researcher for the Berkshire segments of the PBS documentary film " A Trumpet at the Walls of Jericho " by filmmaker Mike Kirk, which aired in 2006.


I am currently working on a new film, (as yet un-named,) which is a time lapse and seasonal exploration of Berkshire land/cloud scapes, architecture and human activities. I 've been shooting and editing time lapse of the Berkshire hills in all their moods for years now, and have compiled what I consider an excellent library of digital video footage of all the Berkshire Landmarks, including some "cottages" many local churches , and the beautiful vistas from all over the county. E-mail me about stock footage If you are interested in seeing/using any of these DV clips.
