In the unscripted realm my documentary work has sent me around the world shooting branded content about everything from blue macaws to race cars. My first doc feature about the US fishing industry and our human relationship with the ocean is in post production and continues to be a passion project where characters, process and storytelling structure are king. Understanding what the viewer can absorb through either side of their brain has been an illuminating education.
Along the way my spots and shorts have won a bunch of awards including a Gold Lion, a Clio, CA Annual, FWA Site of the Year, Tellys and Addys, as well as a handful of film festival awards. My web series The Stay-At-Home Dad, which I directed and co-wrote, was dubbed “Mega-popular” on Comedy Central’s Atom.com with over 4 million views. I was nominee for NH Filmmaker of the year in 2007, and I’m a founding board member of the Monadnock International Film Festival.
I have extensive experience in taking multiple projects from script to shoot through post. I have an amazing network of people and resources for all scales of production on both coasts that I’m willing to share. I live in Portland, OR with my family and two goofy labradoodles, but I’ll jump on a plane on a moment’s notice.
