Freelance DP with a passion for telling visual stories: I started out as an actor fed up with the sitting and waiting for something to happen so in 2013 I picked up a camera and started filming my own things. 4 years later I've acquired equipment, skills, and a passion for anything and everything involved in telling a story.

My filmmaking career began after my first video production class at the University of Iowa. First taking internships with the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinic and moving on to working with the Hawkeye Network writing shooting and editing television content I quickly found my place in production. Throughout college I learned about the technical specifics to create quality cinema. After college I moved to Seattle to begin my post graduate career. I quickly found a home with SIFF (The Seattle International Film Festival) working as a Special Events Assistant Coordinator. After festival season ended, I began working as a freelance cinematographer shooting pickup commercial work for companies based out of L.A., and music videos for national acts. In 2017 I became the Gear Guru for ShareGrid. After offering my helping hand on ShareGrid PRO I moved back into freelance and contract production. I Was the Post-Production Supervisor for Hand Crank Films as well as worked as a Director of Photography for production companies like World Of Wonder Inc. Most recently I've been shooting and doing Post-Supervisor work with Paul Allen's Vulcan Productions.
