Born May 14, 1993 and homeschooled on the Canadian Prairies. Discovered that making videos was fun at age fourteen. Discovered that film was a beautiful art form at age seventeen (the result of watching Paul Thomas Anderson and Terrence Malick in my college dorm room). Currently involved with Split Art Media in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan and producing content whenever I'm able to find time!
I've traveled to West Africa for documentary film work, shot music videos, wedding videos, corporate videos and a whole variety of other flavors (hats off to willing friends and family who have subjected themselves to assisting in all my experimental earnesty). I love what I do and I love giving people a medium with which to tell their own stories. In the future, I hope to continue doing exactly what I'm doing now. (Except, you know, more of it.)
