About Me

Cinematographer | Steadicam Operator

I'm a fluffy-headed filmmaker raised in mid-Missouri with a strong passion for cinematography and immense admiration for awesome Steadicam work. I received my bachelor's at the University of Missouri with an emphasis in Marketing. Upon my graduation, I began my storytelling education through the simple art of shooting and editing. Along the way, I studied cinematography and learned the art of the Steadicam by purchasing my own rig. Now residing in Los Angeles, my passion for filmmaking drives me to continue to produce quality content, collaborate with others and tell even greater, more impactful stories.
