Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Art attended college in Southern California. In the mid 70's having graduated from San Diego State with a BS in biology and Brooks School of Photography, Santa Barbara with a BA in cinematography; Art relocated to Utah to pursue his dream of shooting ski films. Upon his arrival in Salt Lake, he was hired by TeleScene, Inc. which was the premier film company in the Intermountain West. Hired initially as an editor; Art worked his way up to director/cameraman within a short time. Besides shooting skiing, Art & TeleScene also shot over 1,000 commercials and corporate films for local, regional and national clients.
In 1985, Art left TeleScene, Inc. to move back to Northern California and start his own company---Silverwood Productions, Inc. to continue producing, directing and shooting. While continuing to shoot for his loyal Salt Lake clients, Art and Silverwood grew in the San Francisco market to shoot automotive running footage packages, a 10 part TV series, 3 independent feature films, numerous corporate videos and over 1,500 commercials. Though starting with a strong background in film, Art has now heartily embraced video and it's evolving formats--from standard def to HD to 4K.
