I consider myself very lucky to be working in film and TV. Every day brings new ideas and challenges, with new opportunities to collaborate and come up with something fun and interesting to do. While working on Heart of Darkness, Orson Welles said, “This is the biggest electric train set a boy ever had!” (He later abandoned that project but, c’mon, his first film was Citizen Kane.) For me it’s not just about the toys but also the wonder of seeing new things, meeting new people and going to the most beautiful, friendly, exciting and/or crazy places the world has to offer. But the toys are pretty great, too.
Thanks to my career I’ve shot on massive glaciers, active volcanos and rolling oceans, as well as the United Nations General Assembly, international combat zones, and on six of seven continents.*
Recently, I finished the coming-of-age comedy feature Good Boys for Universal Pictures and producers Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg. Before that I shot three seasons of the critically-acclaimed series Search Party for TBS and four seasons of Inside Amy Schumer for Comedy Central. On the documentary side, my credits include The Family Business: Trump and Taxes, The Zen Diaries of Garry Shandling, May It Last: A Portrait of the Avett Brothers, and Big Men.
