To me, a camera is a tool that can unleash boundless creativity, personality, and imagination... As a growing filmmaker, I intend to use that tool to it's full potential and to achieve my dream of making movies.
For most of my films, I write and record my own soundtrack and shoot all of my own photography. Professionally, I specialize in music video production, short films, commercial advertising, and documentaries.
In the coming months, I will be leading several film projects in different formats which I will be posting to this site. I'm so excited to share the first steps of my journey as a filmmaker with you all... thank you for watching these motions.
Experience what I imagine.

Katahdin- A GoPro Adventure Film
In 2014, I set out with my father and cousin on a 16-hour trek up Mount Katahdin's epic Knife Edge.
Conquering the mountain by land and water, it was an adventure that I'll never forget. I composed a soundtrack the day we got back and
edited the footage together in this short film. I'm so thankful I have this recorded to remember the journey by!
