Energy is everything — from the energy on set to the images I create. I find inspiration in motion and motivation in my work as an action sports and outdoor cinematographer. I’ve skateboarded hundreds of miles, and driven across the country countless times, so that gives you a picture of me on the move.
I’ve also been inspired by my dad — a documentary photographer and traditional herbalist with many Appalachian and Cherokee mentors — as I spent a good portion of my childhood working in the family business, living in the back country and traipsing all over the Appalachian mountains gathering herbs, teaching classes, and selling at markets and craft shows.
While I grew up surrounded by his photography and shaped by these outdoor experiences, I never really touched a camera until I was a teenager and started making parkour videos with my friends. I was hooked.
That developed into a love of filming action sports and working in the outdoor industry which eventually drew me west, to Colorado.
I’ve been creating commercial and doc work for over five years, with strong experience in post-production including color. I’m committed to great customer service, a professional but fun experience, and clear communication with my clients.
