Our Team

Meet the team

Just a bunch of nerds solving problems!


Scott was lucky to discover his passion early in life. He was engaged in the world of media at an early age — working in radio at 16 and moving on to producing documentaries and small horror films with friends.  After graduating from Ohio University, he moved to Alabama to work as an editor and production manager on various outdoor shows including Buck Masters. 

After three years, it was time to come home to Ohio where he began a successful freelance career as a DP/Director.  In 2001 he founded a company that would become Ohio HD.  Starting as a DP with a camera package, he quickly expanded the inventory, inadvertently creating a much needed camera rental house in central Ohio.  Today Scott continues to work as DP and directs the team at Ohio HD which has grown past his wildest dreams.

Outside of the office, Scott travels the world with his wife Michelle.  He enjoys hiking, biking, time with family and dabbling in special effects makeup.

AC | Overall Smart Guy

In 2009 Casey found himself with the opportunity to join Ohio HD. Previously he had worked as on-call tech support for an ISP or working as a stage manager for a Vegas-style magic show. Casey was always happiest when there were interesting problems to solve. He was happy to discover that video production offered plenty of opportunities for creative problem solving.

As an AC Casey feeds his need for problem solving while helping craft intriguing images that tell the story the DP and the client want to tell.

When he finds himself away from work, he is often on the motorcycle exploring a back road, but still carrying an assortment of cameras. I can’t get away.

Oh, and coffee.

The Gear Room Guy

Coming from a background in Live Events and Grip and Electric Rentals, Alex Nowak joined the Ohio HD team in June 2018.  He takes pride in not only making you feel at home at our shop, but making sure the equipment that you've rented is up to our standards and completes your needs.  Alex is a Bobcat, and fellow graduate of the Ohio University in Athens where he studied for his Bachelor's Degree in Video Production.  He takes pride in his job here at OHDV, treating your production as an extension of himself.

You will find Alex in our Gear Room as a constant presence of our company.  He works to make sure your orders depart and arrive with consistent accuracy, and to help to continually improve operations and organization.  He specializes in a personal touch with customer service, and will see you to and fro your production as the least hectic part of your shoot day(s).  

When he's not at OHDV, Alex enjoys music in all its forms: concerts, musicals, collecting vintage formats, or even just singing to himself.  As a painter, he dabbles in the abstract of alien and otherworldly forms inspired from his love for surrealist and horror fiction media.  As a connoisseur and cook, he will try any food once, and aims to make his meals with a touch of his Polish and Southern flair that leave his dinner guests in a state of awe and comatose satisfaction.  He enjoys board games with casual groups, video games with close friends, and even nerdier things with geekier people.  Poor thing.
