Born and raised in Indiana, I grew up on the 80's and 90's Action/Adventure blockbusters, and always dreamed of being a director. Spielberg was my idol and I spent my days coming up with plots and scenes I would put in a movie, or add to some of my favorites. I also loved traveling with my camera always at my side, taking stills wherever I went. Once I got to college, I really got to create the ideas I had in the back of head with access to studios, pro video equipment and editing suites.
I was brought up being on time and professional, but have always been the type of guy to voice my ideas and opinions in a beneficial way. Many of my colleagues and clients in the past have called me a "jack of all trades" with my ability to do it all in a timely and professional manner. Photography and web design are also a few of my hobbies, but my true passion is video.
Working in the Film industry in Southern California since 2006, I have worked on small budget web commercials all the way to full length feature documentaries and everything in between. From working locally, to South America, Europe, and on a ship in the Arctic Ocean, travel has always been as much of a passion as film to me. Whether it's a quick turnaround, a full fledged production, there is no project too big or small. if I had to describe some of my best traits, as one of my clients mentioned to me once, "You've always had a high integrity and always reliable to count on for any project" - Zachary Nevel, Indie A&R Entertainment.
