PERSONAL TRAITS

So stress-resistant I can run for president tomorrow.

No objections to doing simple, mundane stuff.

I have never let anyone down.

Open to new ideas. Actually, probably thinking about them right at this moment.

I am very smart. Seriously.

I like to work.

I LOVE working in teams.

One of the things I am really proud of is the "New York Tenants Project".

Check it out here. It's an interactive documentary we've worked on in a small group of people.

I was the man behind the camera as well as one of the editors on the part that is called

"the Bronx, Chinatown & Bushwick".


I also used to write a blog about cinematography several years ago which I was really proud of.
