What’s your unofficial role at COW? // What hats (metaphorically and/or literally) do you wear at
I handle day to day production and logistics of shoots as well as creating estimates for shoots.

How’d you get started in the industry?
I started doing freelance for a photographer named Steven Klein, and went from 1 day to 2 days to full time.

What brought you to COW? What keeps you there?
Coworkers, enjoying working with the crew.

What makes COW different?
The people we work with.

You’re stuck on a deserted island with only a film crew and the necessary equipment to shoot a short film. What’s the plot?
Think Gilligan’s Island but with a drone.

If you could tell a prospective client only one thing about working with COW, what would it be?
We are one stop shop that does not take any shortcuts and makes sure everyone is happy with the finished product.

What’s your favorite part of your job? What gets you out of bed in the morning?
I love production because every day and job is different, we are not always doing the same thing over and over and over again…..

What’s your philosophy when it comes to production?
Do it right and take pride in your work.

Where can we find you on a long weekend?
On the mountains snowboarding during the winter and mountain biking the rest of the year.

Two truths and a lie.
I love my job, I want a Nissan GTR and I don’t want to retire.
