I am professional, reliable and patient. My background of Zen culture and Japanese calligraphy allows me to stay calm and focused at all times.

My goal as a photographic assistant is to make the photographer feel great about their shoot, supporting them the best I can in order to allow the day to run smoothly and successfully.
