For the past 20 years I’ve worked as a location scout & manager in television commercials and print.  In between jobs, I've lent my energies to the Location Managers Guild International (our industry trade association) and ceramics.

THE LOCATION MANAGERS GUILD INTERNATIONAL:

In 2003, I incorporated the Location Managers Guild,  a 501-C6 non profit trade organization. The LMGI was created to help promote and educate the public and industry as to what a location manager does. The Guild produces a quarterly magazine (THE COMPASS), hosts photography exhibitions, charity events (HABITAT FOR HUMANITY), and produces an Award show that honors the best in the craft.
