About Us

     I’ve  enjoyed a lifetime in the service business and continue to foster my ability to see every situation from the perspective of my client.

     Today, my work involves predominantly the catalog /digital stills industries. I also location and/or production manage commercials and music videos. My clients include New York Times Magazine, Capital/EMI, Darius Rucker, Springmade, Lowes, Gloster, Thomasville, Ralph Lauren, QVC, and Toyota. I work very closely with and for the South Carolina Film Office providing them with fresh location images of beautiful Charleston and my beloved Lowcountry. More than 30 years of location managing, decorating and propping feature films, television movies, commercials, & music videos in the Carolinas and Georgia have gained me invaluable knowledge and expertise locating the key resources needed by production. With this knowledge, I soon began production managing and coordinating catalogs, commercials, and music videos, like an Edwin McCain music video, Eddie Bauer, Abercrombie, Tommy Hilfiger, Storehouse Furniture, and other catalogs as well as commercials for Rustoleum and South Carolina Parks , Recreation, and Tourism.

     I began my film career in 1973 shooting 16mm television commercials with my trusty Arriflex and Bolex cameras at Charleston, South Carolina affiliate WCIV television. I later completed my undergraduate degree in Media Arts at the University of South Carolina in 1976. In 1979 I worked to recruit movies with the fledging South Carolina Film Office, a successful relationship I have continued to this day. Forrest Gump, Prince of Tides, North and South, Swamp Thing, Rich in Love, The Lords of Discipline and Queen are among the projects I have had a hand in recruiting and in some cases, location managing.
