Currently, I'm not sure where I call home... I travel so much... I graduated from Cal Poly, SLO in English and later attended The Brooks Institute of Photography and Film in Santa Barbara.  

I'm a Producer/ Director/ Cinematographer of such TV shows as DEADLIEST CATCH, AXMEN, STORM CHASERS,BERING SEA GOLD, and ICE ROAD TRUCKERS for the Discovery and History channels. Most recently I produced the highly rated Shark Week specials ALIEN SHARKS: RETURN TO THE ABYSS in the S. Indian Ocean, and ALIEN SHARKS: CLOSE ENCOUNTERS in Taiwan, following a marine biologist discovering new species of sharks. 

Production company: DOGTOOTH productions.
