Real Stories - Real Emotion - Real Passion

I embrace filmmaking and photography as multi-layered processes that involve the visualization, interpretation, and creation of an artistic vision.

I developed an affection for photography and film while growing up in the mountains of the Eastern Sierra. Inspired by the works of adventure photographer Galen Rowell, I discovered my passion for creating emotional connections through powerful and authentic images. Today I pursue this passion through motion pictures. I strive to capture thought-provoking stories that transcend genre and format. From ancient Buddhist dances in the Himalayas, to diamond mines in the Canadian tundra, to the lives of Los Angeles foster youth, my mission is to inspire viewers to reflect and re-examine their lives and perceptions of the world. Recent accolades include a Sundance Official Selection for documentary "Seeing Allred", a "Prime Time Emmy Nomination" for the Opening Title Sequence for HBO's Olive Kitteridge, and "Best Cinematography" nominations at the La Jolla International Fashion Film Festival, Chicago Blow Up International Art House Film Festival, and Artlightenment Film Festival.
