- 1st year in Industry: 2009
J.D. has worked in the film industry for the last 10+ years in New Mexico, Colorado, and New York, eventually returning home and planting roots in Denver. He specializes in spunky creative fictional narratives, and has an extensive background filming short films, documentaries, music videos, and commercials.
Starting as an electric in NY, J.D. learned cinematography is the pedestal for great story and great imagery comes from the crew understanding their individual role in driving the narrative forward. This is why J.D. surrounds himself with talented and experienced crew, because every role matters.
In recent years, J.D. founded LivaLittle.com, a commercial video production company dedicated to hiring crews that reflect Denver’s diverse communities.
