How do you first define yourself ? 

Visual creator!

Where are you based and what is your main activity?

I'm base in the United-States, in Los Angeles, California; My main activity is shooting aerial motion followed by general motion for advertising and stock. Stills mainly for long-stablished clients.

How did you come to drone filming/photography (or helicopter, …) ?
I’ve always loved flying and started to shoot aerials as part of my stills jobs in the 1980s. Doing the same with a movie camera was a natural progression. I also am a commercial pilot for both airplanes and drones.

Yes, absolutely. Please have a look at my references and experiences:
