About Us

20 years ago I was browsing through one of my favorite skateboard magazines and became infatuated with learning how to produce such high quality, beautiful and clear images of fast paced action. At the time I knew nothing about photography and it was that curiosity the lead myself, with the help of my parents (who are not video or photo professionals - just loving parents) to learn everything I could about DSLR still cameras and standard video cameras of the time (late 90's). Soon I began producing my own skateboard videos and magazines that I would share with my friends at school and then eventually in college this background lead me to declare my major as Digital Cinema in 2004. By 2007 I had graduated and I began finding far more success and fulfillment in the freelance world than climbing the internship ladders at production companies in downtown Chicago.

Math and Science comprehension has always come naturally to me from a very early age but it was not until I discovered photography (and later video) that I actually found an application of these skills that felt meaningful. The intersection of Art and Science is where I feel the most at home. My ability to hybrid technical and creative thought processes as well as the emotional intelligence I have developed in my adult life make me extremely competitive within a saturated market of media professionals.

Since I began my professional career I have worked for an extremely dynamic range of clients in countless roles in both scripted, traditional production/post world as well as the fast paced, improvisational world of social media and branded content. In the past few years I have also begun producing jobs for clients from start to finish both independently through my LLC and as a collective with close colleague/friends under the name VeryTaste. I love what I do, I love my time here on planet earth and I am eager to find an opportunity in my new Nevada home that I can continue to grow and expend with.
