 I have been a location scout / manager, producer, and photographer for over thirty years working in Detroit, LA, Paris and NYC. I have scouted, location managed, and produced assignments for many productions, commercials and independents.

 I have produced commercial advertising for over 25 years and have recently produced movies starring Eric Roberts, in Fractured, David Arquette, in Orion; the critically acclaimed, Cash Only, which the NY Times called “the new Mean Streets", production supervised the Detroit scenes for "Don't Breath",  and a documentary on predatory lending, Loan America.

 I have experience in Budgeting, Casting, Location Research and Scouting, Permits and Contracts, Vehicle and Equipment Rentals, Crew Booking, and Travel Coordination.

 Please check my references on IMDB and my website to see the breadth of my experience, everyone I have worked with has been overwhelmingly satisfied with my work.

 I am a member of Teamsters 337, for locations, and the DGA, as a Production Manager.

 My photography work is in the collection of the Detroit Institute of Arts. Portraits include Andy Warhol, Jim Carrol and Ozzy Osborne among others. I have directed music videos by such artists as dark red, Thee Kaprinans, Thief, Thornetta Davis and the Blackman and Amy Gore and her Valentines.

 In addition to the list below, I started, art directed, and photographed Model D and Metromode,webzines on Detroit and its environs building a library of over 100,000 images.

 I recently wrote and photographed a book, “Things I do in Detroit by The Nain Rouge”, a collection of the greatest places in Detroit.
