Film and Commercial

I freelance as a producer/director/editor/writer. I co-own a film production company that operated as a commercial entity simultaneously for the past 7 years. In October of 2018, we decided to focus soleIy on film and television development and production in which I am currently developing a feature film script. I have extensive understanding of the marketing needs of clients. I combine creative and business to give you outside the box thinking with a realistic approach. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you would like to see any more examples.

Below is a sampling of selected work.

2018 Target Police Officer of The Year - Mark Dallas

A short doc piece I cut. It was tough to pair down. So many wonderful moments in this story.

Box Tops for Education - No Books

This is one of six different hidden camera scenarios I directed for General Mills. I worked with Dave Coulier, along with other spots featuring Mario Lopez and Alyson Hannigan.

Lifeproof - Episode 1 - Spring into Action

This is the first of a seven part short episodic series I directed. This direct to client project was super collaborative and they really allowed me the freedom to play with some fun 70’s style camera work.

Chex Party Mix - Guide to Holiday Magic

I wrote and directed this for General Mills. The whole piece was shot in a day which made for the stylized set pieces in a studio all the more important.

The Ice Cream Man (short documentary)

A short documentary I directed, produced and edited about an ice cream man I have come to known. Sweets and smiles.

Farmer-to-Farmer Project - Mali, Africa

I shot, directed, produced and edited this film for USAID and the Farmer-to-Farmer project. My first time having assistants who I couldn’t speak english with but it was a magical experience both personally and professionally.
