Grip and Lighting Technician

In 2008, he was introduced to the film industry here in Austin. Mid 2010, he joined Gear full time as a Grip and Lighting Technician, working towards a career in the film industry as a grip and electrician. Since he's been here, he's worked on several shoots as a best boy, grip, gaffer, and electrician.
