Thanks for stopping by!

After spending most of my teenage years experimenting with all sorts of cameras, and mediums, I found myself graduating from the University of Texas at Austin with degrees in both Photojournalism and Radio. Television. Film in 2014. I've since put down roots in Austin as a freelance cinematographer--shooting long and short form narrative, doc, and commercial content. 

Speaking of content, I've lensed for brands like Yeti Coolers, The New York Times, The Knights of Columbus, and Wayfair Furniture. Some of my documentary and narrative work has even received nods from College Press Photographer of the Year, and the TMC London Film Festival. My most recent narratives have screened at both Lone Star and Hill Country Film Festivals. 

As the saying goes--story first. I want to find compelling and humanizing stories and punctuate them with cinematic and thoughtful visuals. Through still or moving images, on 16mm film or the latest and greatest digital camera, I aim to create content that is of course visually striking, but more importantly, true to the root of our story. 

Drop me a line and tell me about the story you want to tell.
