About Me

Commercial Production & Narrative

Hi everyone,

I'm a filmmaker with equipment, crew, and lot of valuable experience working with large brands/production companies. With my background in post-production and cinematography, Im able to help see your project through to the end. I’ve worked on many beauty, fashion, music video, and narrative projects. I’ve also helped larger companies scale up their in-house video team, providing workflows and hardware to achieve quality in a volume environment.

My work can be found at my websites listed below- I'd love to hear your feedback!

Added on 1/21/2020
Here's a sample of a low-budget music video shot out in the desert with a 2 person crew. Although the band is young and silly, we had enough time to come up with a fun concept, rent a car, and chose locations that fit the story.
