The Render Negative brand began over 10 years ago as an amateur photography endeavor, and has evolved to encompass a suite of Creative Services.

Photography is the trade-skill I am most formally trained in, although I was sculpted in Social Psychology. I am a social creature who loves to help people communicate in ways they might not expect. My creative nature grants me the imaginative vision to challenge convention. Part of that challenge is creating pyrography, or wood burning, for custom signs, embellishments, and decoration.

I am actively pursuing a career in the entertainment industry, particularly theater and film production, and have been working on independent short films as a script supervisor and producer. I am available for portraiture, production stills, product/showroom, architectural, insurance, and event photography. My strengths include resourceful and innovative creative craft and design, conducive to the objective of the arts and props departments. My stage management background allows me to be comfortable and focused on set, while my military service reinforces my professionalism and reliability.

I have many surprising skills, if given the chance to perform. Pyrographer, dog whisperer, expert traveler. I can drive and cook nearly anything, build a set, mend a tunic, photograph your newborn, and manage your social media all in one day.

Let me inspire you!
