About

For me filmmaking is a passion and a hobby. I like to tell stories through the lens of the camera and on screen. The collaborative effort that are put together by and with other filmmakers makes it creative, fun, and rewarding for me. I am a non-union freelance filmmaker in Southern California, the north end of San Diego county. 

As a film director, I completely immerse myself with the story, the people in front of and behind the camera, managing the entire production process, communicating with and mentoring the casts and crew.  
 
As a cinematographer, I am particular about the composition, lighting, visual aesthetics, and sound. I own and spent many hours manipulating cinema cameras, lenses, and lighting gears. I also edit and color grade in post production with my own NLE and Color Grading system. 
 
I also enjoy writing scripts for short independent films and producing them as well. I always look forward to collaborate with production groups as a freelancer.  
I am the founder and current president of Patchwork Visions, an independent film production group in San Diego, California. Please check me out and our productions here.
My goal is to make the best pictures that will take notice on the worlds' festivals and cinemas. If you are like me who is passionate about filmmaking, drop me a line so we can create stories and make creative film projects together.
