I come from a family of lion tamers, and I grew up listening to my grandpa's incredible stories. Whether it was rescuing mountain lions from flooded California waters or retrieving stray lions from biker gangs on calls from the local PD, his tales were always action-packed and astonishing. My parents often joked that the only thing that could keep me still for hours on end was watching "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang." Movies and books became fundamental to my childhood, and from a young age, I was captivated by storytelling.
As I matured, I delved deeper into my family's history and developed a keen interest in documentary filmmaking. Although I pursued a career as an engineer in my education, it ultimately paved the path for me to become a more skilled filmmaker. These intertwined passions have shaped me into a creative individual who values storytelling immensely without ever sacrificing the technical beauty and rich detail that define film.
"The people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow Roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars." - Jack Kerouac
I LOVE that we're all different. None of us grew up in the exact same cultures, families or places. Our surroundings mold us, shaping who we become. No matter your outlook on life, I aim to spin your love story in a way that truly does it justice.
I picked up the guitar around the age of 12. My dad saw how interested in the video game, 'Guitar Hero' I was and surprised me on my birthday with a beautiful red electric guitar. I remember playing that thing for HOURS on end (mostly the intro riff for Sweet Child O' Mine (my sisters loved me for it lol)). From starring in lead roles for our school musical productions to playing out with some of my greatest friends; music has always played an important role in my life.
When I'm not enjoying the sweet sound of music, you can catch me outdoors. Nothing is as freeing to me as disconnecting from the day to day hustle as walking out into the woods and pitching a tent. I live for moments like these and hope to share some of these experiences with you!
THE PLACES: When I graduated college back in 2017, I jumped in a tiny Nissan hatchback with my best friend and drove across the western United States backpacking in national parks along the way. This trip set me off on a path that I will always be grateful for. I grew up weighted to my home state, but this journey opened my eyes to a depth of human experience & culture that I had not yet shared. Ever since, I've been hooked on traveling. Every chance I get, I'm looking to expand my experiences and try new things. I find growth in discomfort and will never stop pushing myself into new horizons.
THE PEOPLE: I believe that the people we surround ourselves with dictate who we will become. I've been SO lucky to have grown up around such a great support system of people who love me deeply. Looking back at old home videos of my childhood brings me pure joy. Losing loved ones hurts, but having those memories captured in film takes me right back. This, to me, is the most important reason to have these special moments captured on film.
