This is the problem I solve. You need to communicate, I have the tools, skills, and experience to make it happen with simplicity and focus.

And when I say tools, I mean tools you can hold in your hands like lights,  microphones, and cameras, but also the ability to create planning tools like scripts, storyboards and shooting schedules. 

My background: I have a masters degree in journalism from the University of Southern California, and a couple of decades in publishing most recently as senior food editor at Better Homes and Gardens magazine (which ended, predictably, with the corporate toodle-oo).  


Doctors Nikon and Canon resurrected my career and with them I learned art of visual storytelling. I still write a lot, but in the five years since leaving the magazine I have shot stills and video for everyone from national news and nonprofit clients to local restaurants and car restoration experts.
