Hit me up! Let's see what I can add to your production! 


- I strive to find the most honest point of view in telling a story. Scripted or documentary, event or commercial:

emotion is above all. 

I'm intrigued by the obscure and unsung, the radical and underground and I bring a visual style that lives up to that. -
