I have been fascinated with cameras as far back as I can remember. My parents have old home movies and photos documenting my early fascination with image creating devices. In middle school my childhood friends and I made our first movie using a Sony Handycam shooting on 8mm tapes.
It was not until buying my first DVD - The Matrix, that I realized this could be a career. It was on those behind the scenes special features I became fascinated with the technical aspects of filmmaking.
In 2008 I obtained my bachelors of science in Filmmaking from Full Sail University. Shortly after graduating I moved back home to Michigan to work as a Production Assistant on a few films taking advantage of the tax incentives that existed at that time. It was on those first few feature films that I built relationships with department heads that would give me my first few gigs in Los Angeles when I moved there in 2010.
Moving to San Francisco in 2012, I began my journey working as a video content creator for the tech world both large and small. I had the opportunity to be an early hire at Chubbies Shorts, an innovative clothing startup. After a year at that startup I left and took a position at Launch Media where I served as video director for the podcast This Week In Startups.
2015 was the year I made the jump and became a co-founder for the first time. Joining the 2-month old company LAtelier Marketing that was started by my co-founder Doriane Mouret. We have produced video content for Cafe X, Launch Media, 3D Robotics, Nima Labs, Investing in Cannabis, Havenly, and many more. You can find samples of a lot of that work on our websites video page.
