editing & post

modern techniques & quick turnaround /

My background in post spans as far back as Final Cut 7. All clients have access to the entire Adobe suite and his custom built edit bay.

Everything from sound design to color to 3D motion graphics can be utilized to create the look and feel you desire.

Come and see why Adobe is the industry leader when it comes to video editing and graphic design. Along with 64GB of RAM, no resolution is too grand, no turnaround too quick.


director of photography & lighting /

It's been 10 years since I started out in the camera department for HBO GO's first ever online streaming show; "Single Long".  I've since taken these years on set to observe and learn the industry trends and invest in the best equipment based on performance and quality.

I'm well versed in documentaries, narratives, music videos, and commercial work across various platforms.

My professional attitude towards lighting and story will help maintain the appropriate priorities throughout the day to deliver an engaging product with emotion and a clear message.


taking the reins & completing the vision /

One thing I will never sacrifice is my appreciation for authenticity. My goal in storytelling is to serve as a conduit, not a filter, and to amplify the message, not alter the journey nor destination. I want to distill the emotional essence of every story into a consumable and digestible experience, one that is empowering and relatable. 

I have an unabashed appreciation for the human element. It’s my passion to seek out brands and messages interested in protecting open societies to better mankind through powerful imagery and and healthy, fair and balanced debate.
