All videos on my site were Written, Produced, Directed and Edited by yours truly. With help from many many excellent motion graphics and audio designers, editors and production crews at CBC.
All photos by me too. Some for freelance and some for fun.

In over 20 years as a promo producer, I've made hundreds of promos and videos for CBC Television, Radio and Online. Including many high profile shows and CBC brand campaigns. My first love is comedy, but I've also worked on the whole range of what CBC has to offer - sports, drama, news, documentary and kids programming.
I worked as a segment producer for The Rick Mercer Report, and shot, edited and produced documentaries for CBC News The National as well as the seminal current affairs program Undercurrents. Now, all of my work goes online.
I've been behind the camera for artists, fashion designers, event planners, architects and jewellery designers. My work has been used in catalogues and portfolios, on websites, posters and billboards. I'm a one man band. I own pro gear and have extensive experience shooting photos and video in many different environments. I also have a home studio for post work. Including editing, audio design and motion graphics. I can take a project from initial concept to final mix.
