I’m a freelance videographer and editor that helps brands visually tell their story.

Over the past ten years, I’ve been working as an in-house and freelance videographer and editor. Using my documentary-style approach; I’ve helped brands and nonprofits capture hundreds of interviews, events, product videos, training videos, and fundraising videos. I’m grateful that I’m able to make videos and tell stories for a living. One of my favorite aspects of my job is being able to travel to new places and work in a variety of different industries. I’m a dad of four kids (almost) and my family and I live in San Diego, California. When we are not working you can find us at a park, hiking in a nature preserve, eating tacos in Tijuana, or just hanging out in Ocean Beach. Let’s set up a time to talk about how I can help you communicate your message.
