Currently living in Kansas City, I've worked on feature films, commercials, music videos, ad campaigns, magazine photo shoots, and have traveled around the globe to hone my skills as a visual storyteller, editor, filmmaker, photographer, and all around multimedia specialist.
I love dogs, meeting new and interesting people, and I'm handy with home renovation. Happily married with two kiddos, so my free time is minimal these days, but I'm always thinking of the next story to tell.
