My Story

It happened 10 years ago...

From the moment I picked up a camera for the first time to capture my family for a middle school art project, I knew I was onto something special. Watching the smiles spread across my parents’ faces as they relived our silly home videos on the small screen was the perfect precursor to my career today. Through years of high school courses and life experiences,the pull to capture life’s moments was never far away, and my dreams to document more memorable moments for others ultimately led me to my career as a cinematographer and photographer. i officially registered as a business in 2014. however, when I’m not in college studying business and digital cinema or running social media for several local companies, I nurture my career and goals to travel the world by photographing and filming a number of destination shoots annually. Seeing the world while documenting important moments and events for clients remains one of my greatest pleasures in my cinematography and photography business and in my life. And, as I did for my family who still reminisces over that family video I shot 10 years ago, I look forward to creating unique, beautiful work which will act as a window back to your special moments for years to come—and all with a burning passion for cinematography and art.
