story + visuals + sound 

I believe in telling good stories with powerful visuals, focusing on projects that motivate people to think and feel by seeing new things.

Working both as a director and cinematographer across various genres, I have experience spanning myriad digital and film formats from IMAX, virtual reality, 3D, and beyond. I strive to utilize any technology, old or new, to best represent the story.

I am also an FAA Licensed Pilot and work extensively with aerial cinematography platforms and drones. (Check out my aerial company:

I have been incredibly fortunate to travel the world shooting projects and connecting with different cultures - these experiences shape my work and who I am.
