I was one of those kids who was fascinated by both the technology and the aesthetics of photography from an early age. When it came time to decide what to major in, there was pretty much only one choice. I went to Rochester Institute of Technology where I received a BFA in Photographic Illustration. One thing led to another and I moved from still photography to motion pictures, and haven't looked back.
The latest project I am really excited about is The Looming Tower, a 10-part series for Hulu. We shot in New York, Johannesburg, South Africa and Agadir, Morocco. I am honored to share credit with Fred Elmes, ASC, Ivan Strasberg, BSC and Willie Nel.
I was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for Best Cinematography for Nadja in 1995, received Emmy nominations for Outstanding Cinematography for the HBO series Carnivàle in 2005, and the movie Game Change in 2012; and was nominated for an ASC Award for All The Way in 2017. I am a member of The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences and The American Society of Cinematographers.
I finished the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon in 4:14:21, which is decent for a non-professional athlete in my "age group." I plan to run the 2018 LA Marathon, and it is looking like I might do it sub-four (hours). There. I said it in public now I have to deliver.
UPDATE: My time for the 2018 LA Marathon was 3:57:44. Delivered!
Now, I only need to shave another 17 minutes to qualify for Boston. Watch this space.
