    KC was excellent as DP/A Cam/Drone Op on our TV travel show "Eat, Play, Stay" multiple city shoot featuring several businesses each shoot day with multiple interviews and OTF's for each one. He maintained a great attitude on set and was very adaptable capturing Interviews and OTF's (under lead of Field Producer) and was able to efficiently swap/double up with B Cam on spraying locations. He was creative with camera/go pro/drone setups in very changing weather on sets and that was VERY appreciated! He had a very pleasant and happy demeanor with crew and most importantly with the biz owners and patrons we covered. He did excellent with his time to drone certain locations (even choosing to do so on his down time) and b-roll at his leisure so he self- managed awesome with time in the field and on travel in-between sets. He delivered awesome content as well! Look forward to working with him again!

    Awesome DP/A Cam/Drone OP for our multiple city travel show shoot. Great demeanor all times on set with crew and the local business we featured. He was also very flexible with our style show and the travel in between to the cities and sets. Delivered us great content. Look forward to working with him again!

    KC is a daredevil. He takes a new technology and then stretches it to the limits reaching a literal pinnacle of perfection. Can't wait to work with him again!
