I am a native New Mexican dedicated and supportive of New Mexico media.

As a graduate of the Film Technicians Training Program at Santa Fe Community College and a member of IATSE Local 480.
I have worked on major area productions for many years. My life has been filled with the finest skilled technicians in New Mexico, and of whom I am honored to be surrounded.

I first coined the term ” Tamalewood” while working on an indie project in northern New Mexico. Tamalewood remains my copyrighted and legal trademark since the fall of 2005. I have this on-going dedication to the inspiration, and the development of my registered trademark: “Tamalewood,’ into all aspects of the film industry, and created the annual Tamalewood award starting from 2006 at the Santa Fe Film Festival to encourage film makers. It has proved a journey developing my trademark to honor New Mexico with quality products and service, but years of hard work and service make the memories that stay with you forever!
