Photographer

I work in multiple artistic mediums, but photography was my first love. Why? Because it stops time. It freezes it cold, preserving emotion that was likely only present once. Capturing the right moment is a tricky proposition, but over the last decade, I've perfected my technique.

Director

Motion pictures expand the concept of photography to include motion, a powerful, emotional tool. Film is a powerful tool in any creators arsenal, and must be wielded with care. The shaky home-movie age passed long ago. Let's continue to push filmcraft forward.

Mastering Engineer

Music is the heart of everything I do. It fuels my creative process, and inspires me to create better work, and dream larger. As a producer and mastering engineer, I've had opportunies to work with some of the brightest independent artists to create well-crafted records that endure the test of time.
