I shot and edited most of the commercial work you see here.
I have been working in film and video production now for about 5 years, graduating from SIU's Cinema and Photography program prior. My commercial work has been seen nation-wide on ESPN and my short films have been seen in the Milwaukee International Film Festival, the New Vision Cinema Series in New York, the Bay Street Film Festival in Ontario, and have received Best Documentary at the Route 66 Film Festival.
Thanks and feel free to contact me if you are interested in my work!
