People have phenomenal stories to tell.
Whether you are a trauma surgeon saving lives or a CEO spearheading a global enterprise, you possess a compelling personal narrative that can be documented and shaped into a thought-provoking film. That's what I do as a filmmaker, find the story and tell it with passion and authenticity. It's a journey that has taken me to wonderful places and introduced me to some remarkable people. Technologists, songwriters, archaeologists, astronauts, tap dancers, and Texas Rangers - to name but a few. Regardless of whose story I'm sharing, I immerse myself in their world so that I convey accurate content and honest messaging. Investigative journalism meets non-fiction narrative. But more importantly, I serve it up with some heart and soul. I can't think of a better way to communicate.
My filmmaking career began on the sets of TV commercials, feature films and television series working as a lighting technician. For almost a decade I learned the ropes of cinematic storytelling under the mentorship of some gifted directors and cinematographers. It was my master class in filmmaking.
A stint as a freelance writer followed, reporting for local rags, penning copy for ad agencies, and researching and scripting documentary films for non-profits and educational publishers. Setting up shop as a freelance filmmaker was a natural progression. What better way to merge the skills I've accumulated as a writer, interviewer, and journalist.
The result? Human stories. Moving pictures.
