I don’t drive a fancy car, and I never went to an ivy league college. I believe in living a purposeful and deliberate life and focus on what’s most important. Based in Portland, Oregon with my incredible wife, Jaylene, and our three non-human children: Charlie, Harley + Roscoe, I create stills and moving pictures for myself and other cool people to enjoy. Storytelling is in my blood.
I don’t know if there was a time in my life when hearing or telling stories wasn’t an important component of my life. For me, it is like taking in oxygen. Outside of telling stories, I am a language learner, volunteer, husband, dog lover + coffee enthusiast. I look for inspiration in simple things and love to travel.
“Our life is frittered away by detail… simplify, simplify”
Henry David Thoreau
Life today is hectic and being heard is difficult. There is so much noise – it’s like everyone is shouting. Some people believe that it’s all about shouting louder to be heard. They think it’s all about the numbers and just in creating a ton of content to pump into an over saturated world… and that does work to an extent, but it’s costly and it misses two fundamental concepts: 1) quality trumps quantity and 2) consistency is king.
What is most important to you?
If you want to create a purposeful message, engage with your audience, and tell stories in your community or market then we should connect. My goal is to focus on the essentials – to tell a good story that has substance, purpose and compelling content. Let’s do something cool together.
