I'm an award-winning director of photography based in Vancouver, Canada. I was born in Barbados before moving to Canada over twelve years ago to pursue a career in motion pictures. My work has since screened at film festivals around the world. I'm always looking for a creative challenge and anopportunity to visualize new stories and ideas.

Some of my favorite "older" cinematographers are Rodrigo Prieto, Robert Elswit, Roger Deakins, Sean Bobbitt, Barry Ackroyd, Emmanual Lubezki and John Toll. However, I also like comtemporaries like Bradford Young, Chayse Irvin, Steve Annis and Ben Loeb among others. I am fascinated by the work of Vivian Maier and Robert Frank.

I own a full camera package and I'm available for features, commercials, shorts and music videos and I'm willing to travel worldwide.
