User Bio

Garrett is a documentary filmmaker focusing primarily on international social justice work. Growing up in a multi-ethnic family advocating for human rights, international aid and adoption he was instilled from a young age with the values of cultural interconnection. Receiving degrees in Video Production and Anthropology from Pacific University, Garrett’s first major documentary Sipping Black Water has played at film festivals throughout the United States. Garrett has traveled and produced documentaries in over 20 countries working for SpinFilm and Semester at Sea. He plans on continuing his work to give a voice to those who deserve to be heard.

Garrett is currently in post-production on a documentary/travel log of a cycling trip across the southern United States to raise money for WaterAid International. The documentary will be a journey on two wheels across the US, interviewing individuals along the way about their lives and the positive connections they feel that spur compassion toward helping those without water and other resources. The film will educate on the water crisis here and abroad while giving a voice to the journey's and people who shared on camera along the way. At heart, Garrett is a storyteller who will advocate for the most potent and professional piece for your business possible. “Peace be the Journey.”
