I have been fortunate to work in more than 30 countries in the last 11 years, where I have photographed everything from the great pyramids of Giza to the Space Shuttle Endeavor; from Erin Brockovich speaking on water conservation, to German factories building the world's fastest car, to the aftermath of the Boston bombings, and so much more.  There is something so satisfying about the storytelling involved in a documentary, and as a cinematographer, I feel that the camera's perspective has the potential to be a supportive structure to the story and a storyteller in itself.  I love the challenge of walking into a new location daily, and finding the ideal light and camera angles to help tell the story that is in front of us.  In a lot of ways, it is not much different from narrative filmmaking - except that you sometimes have to be more creative/flexible in how you approach using the uncontrollable elements around you. It is always exhilarating, and will continue to be one of my ultimate passions.
