I shoot stills and video, produce and edit comedy sketches, short films and documentaries, build web sites, manage social media accounts, and executive produce a podcast.
I bring a multidisciplinary approach to my work, grounded in the problem-solving realities of extensive retail management and accounting experience, informed by a philosophy derived from an educational background in new media and political science, and driven by a desire to create interesting things.
With the Los Angeles-based digital comedy collective Nightpantz, I have been a cinematographer, director, producer, actor, editor and marketing person for digital videos that received millions of views on Facebook, YouTube, Funny or Die, and WhoHaHa. (I also created the Nightpantz website)
With world traveler, chowhound, and raconteur Chef Chris Clarke I helped create and executive produce the Something About Food? Podcast. In practical terms, this means creating visual assets and videos, creating and maintaining the website, helping polish social media content for our Blog and Facebook pages, and managing the logistical aspects of podcast distribution.
I provide logistical and creative support for Spent Saints New Media. I created their Spent Saints & Other Stories website to help promote Brian Jabas Smith's collection of short stories by the same name. I collated assets and coordinated the YouTube release of a series of evocative micro shorts based on the collection, as well as directing one and shooting another. I was also the associate producer a series of shorts based on the collection, coordinated its release on Amazon Prime, and cut the trailer for the series.
I edited the award-winning documentary short film Tucson Salvage, shot additional footage, and created the website for both the film (directed by Maggie Smith) and the book Tucson Salvage: Tales and Recollections from La Frontera (the collection of articles it was inspired by). I was also the Associate Producer, and was responsible for coordinating equipment rental, post-production audio mix and color correction, and delivery for screenings. I am currently executive prooducer for a follow-up documentary called Love from La Frontera.
I built the website for Tucson musical legend Billy Sedlmayr to promote the release of his new album
