I create visual brand stories through motion pictures, photographs, And animation.

and i aim to be super.

super creative. super professional.

Super AWESOME to work with. with super results.


Below is a (cheeky) backstory of how I got into this game… on a mission to be super

yes BIG DREAMS…

I was born in Oregon.

And I had big dreams.

Big dreams of doing things that impacted the world.

I had an early love for cinema, the major cultural zeitgeist of the time. And I started making short films on a VHS camcorder at age 13.

By high school, my life’s aim was to create artistic films in Hollywood…

IN THE BEGINNING…

I wore an eye patch.

And was hatching not-so subtle plans for world domination…

…wait scratch that…

IN THE BEGINNING…

I had big dreams.

(while holding a... beer can?)

and be super…

And after I became wealthy and (notable?)

I would use my vast resources to help save the environment.

Big dreams, yes.

 
 

FAST FORWARD…

8 years.

Or was it 9?

I graduate from Montana State University and I’m working as an editor for director Yarrow Kraner.

But I decide I want to begin my directing career sooner than later… so I quit my job…

I start shooting spec commercials...

And I’m going totally broke…

until i get a call…

From the Vice President of the Wounded Warriors Foundation, who help traumatically injured veterans rehabilitate into society.

They saw my student documentary and wanted me to bid on their new fundraising video…

Against real production companies… This was 2009.

I was 22 years old...

 
 

WHICH BROUGHT ME TO venice beach, ca

Where our film had caught the eye of a few producers…

And I started to get hired to make doc style Branded Content for big brands.

And shoot stills for editorials and print.

(Insert Brand Names Here)

SINCE mad genius…

I have rebooted my commercial work, going full steam ahead

I work as a Creative Producer for True Beauty Digital

And I am currently Creative Directing a new Fintech project for STFRD

And…

I stopped waiting until I was wealthy and (notable?) to work on environmental causes.

I’ve become a Forest Restoration Supervisor at Tree People, helping to replant fire damaged forests in California over the past year.

but i won the job…

Because of my pitch…

Which was, “Don’t make a fundraising video… let’s make a short documentary about what you do. Because what you do is amazing.”

The film ended up winning the Explore Award from The Annenberg Foundation in Los Angeles. And the Hatch Groundbreaker Award and NexTV’s Social Impact Award.

And in effect, the film we created was a fresh inroad in a new era of marketing, soon bequeathed… Branded Content… by the advertising gods.

WHICH EVOLVED…

into growing my skill set with VFX and design based infographic integration,

and then to creating live action VFX commercial work…

and ultimately the feature film MAD GENIUS. Which landed on Showtime.
