NEW: February 2016 - Yes, my big passion is filming and editing micro-documentaries. But I'm so excited about my current project that I have replaced the photo of my face with the cover of my writing project! Artwork is by Jordan Mitchell.

It's a travel guide to Monterey, California---a world-class travel destination visitors have repeatedly described as "transformative"---but it's disguised as a murder mystery. It's a handy vacation-planning tool. Read it with your travel companion! Your decisions shape the story and there are videos, of course! Learn more by clicking here.

The "Watch My Videos" button above takes you to a video of a graffiti artist I met in Bogota, Colombia, last summer. He talked about his work and about the unique situation in Bogota that makes urban art so fantastic.


I help people

- tell their stories with video (I film and edit)

- share their videos online so that more people see them.

I shoot documentary-style, so no scripts.

I love filming (in no particular order)

- travel experiences

- small-business profiles

- behind-the-scenes looks at film and video productions

- nonprofit-organization profiles

- artist/musician profiles

UPDATE: I've made 9 narrative films (i.e. non-documentaries, fiction) in the past 3 years. I enjoy that, too!
