Vision Meets Adventure: Exploring through the Lens

Hailing from Los Angeles, California, I am not only a Digital Imaging Technician and the proud proprietor of Westside DIT, but also an avid athlete and outdoorsman. In 2018, I founded my company, Westside DIT, and since then, I’ve had the privilege of collaborating with esteemed directors and cinematographers, many of whom have received prestigious accolades. With a wealth of experience spanning over 15 years in the film industry, I have contributed my expertise to an extensive array of projects, including commercials, movies, television productions, music videos, and photo shoots.

Beyond my professional achievements, my life has been deeply enriched by my insatiable passion for travel and the spirit of adventure. I’ve explored diverse corners of the world, seeking out thrilling experiences that continually ignite my sense of wonder. It is this inherent curiosity and unwavering desire for exploration that has not only inspired my pursuits in photography, cinema, and photojournalism but also propelled me to push my physical limits.

As an accomplished athlete, I have completed the grueling Ironman challenge, a testament to my dedication and endurance. In 2023, I conquered the demanding Marathon des Sables, a race renowned for its arduous multi-stage desert course. Additionally, my love for the outdoors extends to my proficiency as a skilled spearfisherman, immersing myself in the depths of the ocean to capture the beauty beneath the surface.

With each new adventure and challenge, I find renewed inspiration that shapes my creative endeavors and fuels my unwavering commitment to capturing captivating imagery and narratives that resonate with audiences around the world.
