I am a Minnesota-born, California-raised, Colorado-based filmmaker/photographer. My work is known for being bold, edgy, and over-the-top. I am known for my "gritty low-angle" shooting technique, and "run-and-gun" shooting that allow me to get into the action, and capture dynamic shots in the heat of the moment. I approach each project with passion and intensity. It is within my REALM that I push the creative boundaries of my craft by challenging my CREATIVITY and DIVERSITY. I challenge myself in my SKILLS and TECHNIQUES as an ARTIST and a FILMMAKER, in order to adapt and evolve to meet specific needs of each client and to exceed their expectations.
I attended The New York Film Academy in Burbank, CA where I studied Film Direction/Composition. I later graduated from the Firefighter Academy at Pueblo Community College in Pueblo, Colorado as a Certified Firefighter in order to gain a realistic understanding of fire ground operations so I could readily adapt my experience to the lead character in a film that is currently in Development. It is this level of challenge and commitment that I thrive on for each new project I undertake.
