Bio

I'm a full-time image maker and part-time adventurer.

My day-to-day life is spent running Once Films, a boutique production studio that creates documentary films - both for commercial clients and our own personal interests. As a director and cinematographer, I've been fortunate to work with a unparalleled team on projects that are meaningful and rewarding. We've had great clients, including some of the largest companies in the world. Our Spotlight Series of films, however, is the most fun we've had yet. The work is very personal and spending time and documenting the work of some of our hometown heroes is a blast. It's an ongoing project that keep our skills sharp and our imagination fresh! Our team at Once Films, and the projects I've been entrenched in, has been recognized with the most prestigious awards in the advertising industry, as well as entrance into a number of film festivals.

When not buried in a creative project, I volunteer my time to Team Rubicon - a international and domestic disaster response organization, serving as an EMT, S&R Tech, and Region VII's Communication Manager. I have weird hobbies.

With both Once and TR, I have grabbed a backpack and hopped an international flight to some of the most challenging environments in Earth, and bring back photos and video of the experience. There's not much I'd rather do.
