About Me

I try to keep my work and aesthetic rooted in portraiture and humanity. I tend to have a genuine curiosity about the lives people live, and a deep interest in the stories they tell.

As both a Director and Cinematographer, I attempt to work as swiftly, intimately, and decisively as possible — traveling with subjects through their stories to achieve a true understanding of their character and values, and bring a hybrid documentary and fine art sensibility to the process. I like to think this allows me to capture mood, movement, emotion, and beauty while also inspiring unaffected and natural performances.

My priority is to create and capture authentic images, and keep each subject focused their story.

I have been in the industry since 2008.
