I earned my Bachelors degree in film and video from Columbia College Chicago in 2008,
with specialisation in cinematography. Upon my graduation I was placed on a coveted internship
with Phedon Papamichael, ASC on a feature film "W." directed by Oliver Stone. I then moved to
Prague and was accepted into a Masters in Cinematography degree program at
Film and TV Academy of Performing Arts, which accepts only four students per year.
I graduated in 2011 and was invited into the Czech Society of Cinematographers.
In 2012 I moved to Ireland. Since then I've shot number of narrative and documentary shorts,
music videos, commercials, TV reality and documentary series, as well as feature length
narrative, documentary and experimental films.
I received four Best Cinematography awards for my work on short films.
