It’s official!

After 13 years as a 1st AC and a few dozens of days transitioning, I have changed my card and am now a Local 600 Camera Operator!

I put a lot of dedication into becoming a good focus puller over the years, and I’m planning on doing the same behind the camera.

I want to show my gratitude to those who have been helping me during this transition:

My “Power” crew: Mauricio Rubinstein, Hernan Otano, Aaron Medick, Scott Maguire, Michael Garofalo, Rodrigo Millán. 

Learan Kahanov, Heather Norton, Amanda Jayne on “Madam Secretary”.

Tobias Datum and Kevin Akers on “Mozart in The Jungle”. 

Day playing on “Power”

Thank you DP Mauricio Rubinstein for offering me to operate the C camera yesterday.

It was very nice to come back to Steiner and catch up with my old Power family: Aaron Medick, Scott Maguire, Rodrigo Millan and the one and only Michael “Godfather” Garofalo!

Big thank you to DP Daniel Patterson(“She’s Gotta Have It”) for having me operate B camera on this new commercial directed Spike Lee. I was happy to work again with my friend and 2019 SOC Nominee Rick Sarmiento on A camera.

Madam Secretary

Thank you to DP Learan Kahanov for bringing me over to Madam Secretary. I really enjoyed working with this crew, including Jamie Silverstein, Peter Vietro-Hannum, Heather Norton and Amanda Rotzler.

We made it! From Brooklyn, to Puerto Rico, to Martha’s Vineyard. That wasn’t an easy one. But the camera crew was top notch.
