""I have worked with Greg for more than 20 years and I can honestly say that he is one of the finest videographers and editors in the Seattle market.
- Enrique Cerna
"Any producer or TV journalist is fortunate to work side by side with Greg, a video artist who masterfully captures the images that bring a writer's words to life."
- Joni Balter
I love what we do. We're passionate about crafting visual stories because the work we do connects our subjects with the larger world. We identify the essence of what people do and distill it into a moving story that touches our audience.
With image-making skills acquired over the better part of my life, my videography informs my editing just as my editing informs my shooting. It’s a process of hard work, an open ear, and a keen eye. I try to do this with elegance, efficiency, fun, and a lot of tenacity.
You'll probably enjoy working with me because I will listen to you and work to achieve a result that surpasses your goals. I like to collaborate because two heads are better than one and I've found that producers and directors appreciate that conversation. I stay focused on what we are trying to say in our production and find creative images and solutions to craft an engaging story that will both excite and inspire our audience.
"Collaborating with Greg is powerful and has always led to creative results."
- Stephen Hegg
