In this emerging market, I've shot for brands like Live Nation, Pepsi, Lollapalooza, State Farm, Hilton Honors, and Bud Light. I work closely with the musical artists, brands and directors to solve problems and create beautiful videos.
I've shot commercials and promotional films for brands like Intel, Precision Planting, and Ipsento Coffee. I also work with non profit organizations such as Willow Creek Community Church and many others.
Creativity, problem solving, and endurance are my strengths. I first pursued a career in film because I was caught by the wonder and awe moments that I saw in Steven Spielberg's movies. I try to create those types of moments on every set that I work on.
I grew up near the city of Chicago in love with movies, sports, and imagination.
For as long as I can remember, Steven Spielberg has inspired the way I think about life and the way I tell stories.
I try to bring mystery and imagination into every film I touch. I use the story and editing to captivate audience heart-strings with a tender moment. I use creative framing and depth to allow the viewer to imagine the next moment. My goal is to create moments that invite the audience in. I want every viewer to interpret the story being told in their own way just as my favorite films have captivated me.
I've been working with directors, brands, and companies large and small to create beautiful films since 2012.
