I am not simply a filmmaker, videographer, or entrepreneur. My role as a storyteller involves seeing and hearing my clients with an attunement that encourages their best selves. I am genuinely driven by a reverence for the human condition––charged with a need to channel it into a creative product and client experience mightily memorable and gently contemplative.
After feeling drained and disheartened by the engine of consumerism, I quit my career in advertising to chase a dream of creatively documenting real people doing purposeful things. I was on a quest to find a higher calling and I found it – behind the camera with a notebook of interview questions in-hand.
My creative process looks different for every client but several touchstones remain the same: establish an atmosphere of vulnerability and trust, stay furiously curious and open-minded, honor the little things while also revering the big ideas, dive to the depths of what really matters, and most importantly: tell every story with as much heart as I tell my own.
Prior to starting my videography business, I grew so dang tired of seeing video content that seemed to synonymize professional production quality with a sterile, detached, depersonalized point-of-view. My filmmaking style seeks to satisfy my own appetite for truth and tenderness. I capture unfussy and endearing glimpses of my subjects, infusing my productions with soul and sensitivity. I provide clear direction on set, while also knowing when to let natural scenes unfold––allowing a signature intimacy to take shape, as if your best friend were holding the camera.
