Favorite Quote:                      By Edgar A. Guest

“Somebody said that it couldn't be done,

But he with a chuckle replied

That "maybe it couldn't," but he would be one

Who wouldn't say so till he'd tried......”

My Quotes:

Every job I do is an opportunity to learn, grow and improve the art and organization of my craft.

It’s the search that is the essence of life.  What someone finds in the act of exploration is an understanding of oneself and humanity.  You learn never to underestimate any person, place or thing.

"The harder you work the luckier you get"




Life-long resident in Hawaii. Top accredited commercial production supervisor, motion picture & commercial location manager & location scout with over 30 years experience in motion picture films, TV series & TV pilots, national/international commercials, print, music videos, on all the Hawaiian islands. Producer for photo shoots. Consultant to productions regarding locations and bidding.  I break down movie scripts and boards and scout to find just the perfect location to fit the directors & production designers vision and the producers needs. Capable of pulling locations out of the hat just in the nick of time. Web pages or Dropbox folders customized for you and your clients.  Extensive expertise in permitting and budget negotiations.  I save you time and money with fast, efficient service. Good working relations with unions and City and State government departments.  “Local” contacts with estates, ranches and private landowners.  No location is too difficult and “no is not an answer”.  Vast professional knowledge of “vision” comes from working with some of  Hollywood’s top directors, cinemetographers and production designers through the years.

Calm under pressure and an excellent trouble-shooter.
