I am a filmmaker and photographer living in Portland, Oregon.
I specialize in outdoor athletic endeavors, and am an avid trail runner and adventurer myself. Being as physically fit as the athletes and models I photograph is extremely important to me and has proven critical in capturing authentic content in unique and far-reaching places.
You have to be driven to survive the overlap of passion and business. You need to take initiative, write and shoot in your own free time, and explore personal projects; it’s been proven that genuine passion fuels creativity.
A huge influence on me has been the discovery of human-powered adventure: ultrarunning, cycling, rafting, mountaineering. These things tap into what it really means to be human, to push yourself, to venture into the unknown. They are where great stories are born.
I love working with small and large brands alike. If there’s a good story to be told, I want to be a part of bringing it to a larger audience in a cinematic and beautiful way.
In the meantime…hopefully I’m off on an adventure!
