About

What's Up? It's Me

I was born in Ohio in 1992, Go Buckeyes, and have since lived in Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Japan, New York, and South Korea. I was raised in a military family and have followed in my parents footsteps. I enlisted in the Air Force and was off to basic training on August 21,2012. Best decision of my life! Since joining I married my best friend Amanda and have a 7lb Chihuahua named Bailey; she's our daughter! I enjoy all films, magic tricks, board games, and puzzles. I have always been a creative person and I find the most joy creating films and pictures that can make a difference. Whether that be in one person's day or the entire world. The joy of seeeing someone crack a smile when they look at my work is enough satisfaction to motivate me to keep creating, but my parents always told me, if your good at something, never do it for free.

Holler at Me!

I'm a Visual Storyteller.

My Goal: Make Moments Last a Lifetime.

I spend most of my time either creating, learning how to improve my creations or meeting new people. I've spent 7 years in the United States Air Force earning a multitude of regional and international awards in Military Media competitions. Each and everyday I try to learn from others in the industry and improve my storytelling abilities. I love what I do because there will never be a day that I know everything, there are always opportunities to learn something new.
