I’m interested in working with people that are pushing the needle with ambitious dreams and a good sense of humor. The type of people that look out for one another and advocate for the outliers, innovators, marginalized communities, creative visionaires, and the betterment of our world.

I love to collaborate in all mediums and genres but my heart lies in non-fiction storytelling. I produce, direct, shoot, and edit. I love exploring the world and have a range of hobbies from surfing, soccer, song writing, jiu jitsu, hiking, improv comedy, reading, hanigng out with my wife and cats, and staring at maps.


I have 10 + years experience in Los Angeles as a Director of Photography. Since being in Boston I spent time concepting and directing short form content and building internal production capabilities at a Boston based advertising agency before moving on to found the production company, Vessel.
