About Me

Cinematography. Photography. Editing. The Usual.

Feature films. Short films. Commercials. Music videos.

Equal parts artist and technician. Relaxed enough to make make something good, stressed enough to make it happen. I freelance in film and video production and dabble with visual arts on the side. I carry a pocket knife and have a 20-year old gecko.

I want to make cool shit.

Currently based in Michigan.

I have been in the industry since 2011.
