Resume/C.V.

When I was 8 years old, I made my first video on my grandfather’s camera. We were living in Tennessee and my brother and I were staying with him for the summer. I’m pretty sure the video was terrible, although it did involve an awesome visual effects shot with an action figure and some fishing line.

That being said, I’ve never lost the fascination with beautiful images. I have a passion for making communication less complicated and using visual media to tell stories. I spent years as a corporate media designer and today I help organizations tell their stories through video.
