I'm a documentary filmmaker, content creator, speaker and writer. When I'm not travelling, I'm at home in Tofino, on Vancouver Island.

I'm the co-director of a documentary film and organization, "Coextinction", exploring the story of endangered killer whales on the west coast of North America. Coextinction inspires action to not only protect orcas, but the entire coast.

I also do other documentary and video work, as well as photography and photojournalism. I studied engineering, but I'm a creative entrepreneur by trade. Deep learning, creating and storytelling is where I thrive on both a professional and personal level.

Some stuff I've done:

I filmed wildlife conservationists on the front lines throughout Africa. I worked for NatGeo photographers at SeaLegacy. I started an eco-clothing company and built a global conservation community. I've built brands and audiences, travelled to wild places, filmed, edited, written, photographed, presented, painted, made music, ran far, danced poorly (but often), surfed (not enough), slept (more recently a lot), and drank (too much) coffee/beer.
