By day, I'm a Digital Media Strategist for the Colorado State University System. Access to education and unlocking individual potential are our core values.
I make films to support the efforts of CSU Fort Collins, CSU Pueblo, CSU Global, CSU Todos Santos, and CSU Spur. The backdrop for my films is world-wide. My first feature, Robert's Village captures a true story with all the makings of a Hollywood trope: one fateful encounter can change lives. The film was shot in 2019, but the film's story starts in 2015 with a simple conversation that happened on Colorado State University's campus and eventually led to rebuilding an entire village in Uganda.
From a baby's first word all the way through retirement, my next feature is a 2–3-year effort about democratizing education, and the value of education to individuals and their communities. The film chronicles the education cycle and seeks to observe how we learn, and how education can create access and opportunity. Are individuals better off with a college degree?
I spend my free time as a director of photography, editor, colorist, and sound designer on a series, Behind the Stripes, about marginalized groups attempting to get into officiating.The stakes are high, from high school refereeing all the way to wearing the white hat in the NFL.

Les is More is a personal film, four years in the making about my dear friend, Les Sundae: philosopher, builder, and storyteller. It's a cinema verite, observational love story about a 75 year old man, living in his bus as he scraps and builds Frank Lloyd Wright meets Dr. Seuss spaces. Les is a master at filling space.
