I'm in love with all aspects of video and photography. Especially in the great outdoors. My father gave me my first Nikon when I was fifteen years old. I've had a camera in my hands ever since. In the early eightties, after graduating from UT Austin I made my way back to Dallas and entered the world of Pro Sports freelance camera work. I eventually landed a gig with ESPN shooting Suzuki Great Outdoors with Burt Jones, Larry Czonka and Will Clark. This lead to Series work with The Outdoor Channel and Fox Sports. Eventually I came upon the niche market of Hunting and Fishing series. Outdoors and Fishin' with 'Cajun Phil" what an education. And then onto my longest running gig, Honey Hole All Outdoors. We've been on the air for almost thirty years now.  It's been fantastic to have the opportunity to film all over the world and to work with amazing people. I have always loved what I do.
