I'm a documentary filmmaker, host, writer, speaker and brand builder. When I'm not travelling, I'm at home in Tofino, on the west coast of Vancouver Island.

I create content, explore ideas and build cool things that inspire, educate and entertain.

I'm currently working on a documentary series and organization, "Coextinction". The debut series tells the story of an iconic species of endangered killer whale. I'm also the field correspondent for Milkywire, travelling the world to share stories of "impactors" on the ground.

I studied engineering, but I'm a creative by nature. I'm skilled at storytelling, branding, digital marketing and content creation. I THRIVE on discovery (and dark chocolate). My brain is speed-wired to ideate and envision - creativity is my O2B (oxygen2brain).

I'm an explorer in many senses of the word. In the allegorical bee hive, I'm a forager bee in search of pollen! I'm a lover of new ideas, places and people!

I'm an advocate for the planet, mental health and educational reform. I've started a bunch of projects. I've painted, filmed, edited, written, photographed, acted, sung, ran far, danced poorly (but often), surfed (not enough), slept (sometimes), drank (too much) coffee/tea/beer, and generally had a great time!

My personal mission is to inspire people to pursue holistic progress and celebrate life.
