Life in Digital came together in 2009 shortly after quitting my full-time sales job for a small tech firm. Since then, I have dedicated myself to videography and a little photography when the mood strikes.

I currently work with Panasonic GH4's and Canon DSLRs. I edit in various programs and strive to create beautiful, cohesive video pieces for my clients.

Personally, my journey to where I am at now has been fraught with mistakes and dead ends. In the past 5 years I have moved many times. Oakland to New York to a short hiatus in Mexico, back to New York and then finally settling down in the East Bay. From tiny living spaces to really, really crappy living spaces...all of these experiences were my own doing. I had options but I chose to suffer a little. I don't consider myself a tortured artist but I do believe that hardships lend to my creative process. I'm a failure in many respects but I continue to push forward regardless of how hard it gets.

Endurance is key in my life. If you work hard, clearly define your goals, sacrifice for them and never stop striving, then anything is possible.

"Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself." George Bernard Shaw
