There is no substitute for hard work and dedication
Growing up, my Grandma took me to the local arthouse theater and introduced me to foreign films, well before I was able to read the subtitles onscreen. These movies taught me how visual storytelling can be used to give the audience an emotional connection to the story
During high school and college I pursued filmmaking by saving up for a camera and, studying all forms of art. After graduating college 2 years early with a degree in Political Science, I started working as a corporate video editor. Within a short time i had amassed a number of clients including Microsoft, Amazon, Filson, The University of Washington, and many others.
Most recently I have been working as a member of Macklemore's video crew for music videos and shorts. This has allowed me to grow as an artist by working alongside cinematographers, musicians, and producers. The connections I have made in the PNW music scene has allowed me to foster creative partnerships with incredible filmmakers and musicians.
