Here are two things you should know about me right away;
1) I’m quick to laugh until it’s time to get down to business, and;
2) You should only ask for my advice if you’re ready to hear the truth.
Right out of High School I volunteered full-time at my church. I taught myself how to edit short video's for KIDstuf -- a weekly live show dubbed “SNL for Families” -- and during the show's four-year 160 episode run I unlocked my talent for production by producing and editing all weekly video content, writing, acting and, doing anything else asked of me.
In 2011 I formed Girl Power Productions and joined with my friend and KIDstuf alum Michael Rotchadl to produce The Ave -- an eight-part stoner web series -- which premiered on Blip.TV, and won the Accolade Award of Merit for the Pilot episode. Since The Ave I’ve written, produced, and edited several short films, including Chinese Takeout for One -- a selected finalist -- in the Seattle Times's 3 Minute Challenge.
A native to Southern California, I currently live near Seattle, WA, with my amazing wife Sarah, and I’m developing several new web series and TV pilots. When I’m not working, I expand my creativity through deconstructing Pinterest home projects and recipes, entertaining friends, and trying to convince Sarah we need a dog. ;)
