Now based in New York City, I’m  a Southwest boy at heart who has spent most of my life growing up in Arizona.  For five years I worked as the Director of Photography at a national lifestyle publication.  After creating loads of witty food videos and docu-reality lifestyle shows, I left to seek out micro-documentary stories abroad.  This hunt has brought me around the globe to over 15 different countries as I have looked to celebrate the good in the world.  There were enough people publishing stories about the awful things going on.  Instead, I began going to the places where those dark events were taking place and found stories of hope shining through.  Needless to say, I met some incredible people and wandered through breathtaking landscapes along the way.  So, on top of the documentaries, I’ve been posting travel vlogs, tips, tutorials, and reviews over on my YouTube channel.  All the plates continue to spin.  I’m back, based in the United States.  Freelance projects keep me in and out of the airport.  Docs are being written and edited.  All the while, my YouTube family continues to make me feel loved.  My previous belief has been affirmed.  To truly know a place, you have to know the people.
