My work: is not “work.” What moves me is the act of creative collaboration with other likeminded, driven, passionate individuals who seek to produce stunning, cinematic visuals for clients worldwide. The era of the lone wolf, individualistic creative is dead. And what is fun without a team to share it with, anyway?

After nearly a decade of witnessing history as a visual storyteller, my work ethic speaks something like this: strive for greatness, create brilliance & don’t be a dick while living life to the fullest. After all: nobody likes to work with mean people, because mean people suck.

So find your voice, discover your passion & practice every day. Let’s work together. I certainly know I’m looking forward to it.
