About Me

          From a young age, I was intrigued by the subtle ways that focus can shape a scene in films and TV. This sparked a path that led to my career as a First Assistant Camera (1st AC). I got my start pulling focus on smaller feature films and branded content, and those experiences were invaluable to me. Over a decade later, my portfolio is diverse, including everything from commercials and music videos to features, TV shows, miniseries, docu-series, and reality programs.

          With this span of experience, I bring a reliable and knowledgeable perspective to every set. I aim for a problem-solving approach: if there’s a challenge, I find a solution, calmly and effectively. I’m here to help our camera department on every set excel, smoothly and efficiently!

"First Assistant Camera" - Definition

Pronunciation: /fərst/ /əˈsistənt/ /ˈkam(ə)rə/

"A focus puller, or first assistant camera, is a member of a film crew’s camera department whose primary responsibility is to maintain image sharpness on whatever subject or action is being filmed... As such, the role of a focus puller is extremely important within the realm of a film production; a “soft” image will, in most circumstances, be considered unusable, since there is no way to fix such an error in post-production. One must also consider that an actor may not be able to duplicate his or her best performance in a subsequent take, so the focus puller is expected to perform flawlessly on every take. Because of these factors, some production personnel consider the focus puller to have the most difficult job on set." -
