I first pursued video work in 2009 as a film student at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. My schooling encouraged me to become an independent video artist. I strive to achieve cinematic storytelling and eschew the point-and-shoot mentality associated with traditional videography. Quality cinematography, lush imagery, and meaningful editing all coalesce to breath life into my films.

I like things simple. This means not getting bogged down with cumbersome equipment and oversized crews. By keeping a low profile, I adapt easily to sudden changes while shooting and maintain a minimal presence for discreet recording. All this being said, I understand that a personalized approach should never result in substandard quality. That's why I use professional gear to capture superior images and sound for all my projects.
