i met Rachel Taylor shortly after she moved back to Memphis through a mutual connection. we talked film for a bit, and a few months later she was helping us out on Sleepwalking as our 1st AC.  she did a great job and was an invaluable, hard-working part of our crew.  now i have the pleasure of helping her by serving as cinematographer on her latest effort.  her short film, Avarice, is being produced by Dan Baker, DP of Sleepwalking, and co-writer/co-director of John Gray and The Glass, the Doorpost projects i worked on as producer/cinematographer.  check out the website, and consider donating to the project!

greetings and salutations!

it’s been a while since posting, but there’s a lot on the horizon. I can’t wait to share a lot of it with you. the past few months have seen some high and low times, exciting and boring, feast and famine. a new chapter is slowly brewing, and being able to share that with others is going to be fun.

in the meantime, i want to congratulate William and Robin Cavataio on recently tying the knot! it was a great service and intimate, country reception in Marion, AR. I was honored to be there, but ducked out before i ended up with yet another wedding garter! if you know William and Robin, be sure and congratulate them!
