More than two decades behind the lens has given me the unique opportunity to be a witness to history. As part of the KBM award winning Telly Team, it’s not about doing one job anymore, It’s having a “can do” attitude. My speciality is Live broadcasting/Streaming. My time wrangling pixels allows me to see things a bit differently. Great sound will lead to amazing pictures. I look for those eye-catching moments that make somebody take a second look at your content. It’s a movement or glint of an eye, the placement of a pen or the smile at the right moment.
As a part of the KBM team, we strive for high standards of delivery. I understand the uniqueness of today’s digital content, the need to encode properly for various social media platforms and the expectation that the video will just play when the client expects it.
