Colorado is arguably filled with some of the most beautiful places on Earth, places that words can't even describe. I was taken to the top of Mt. Evans by a friend of mine for the first time in 2013. I quickly realized how special of a place it was and decided I wanted to shoot a collection of footage and create something from it. This film is not perfect, and I don't want it to be. Every single frame means something to me personally, because every shot is from a moment that I wanted to capture just as much as the moment had captured me. I know that I could have gone back up with a drone or a million different lenses to try different shots and angles, and I still wouldn't have been able to depict what this place is really like... but I think the reality is, you have to go up there to experience the magic of it.
This is Mt. Evans through my eyes.

This is a high energy edit I created for Acura's release of the NSX GT3 for race track usage.
Agency: MullenLowe LA
This is a piece I was able to direct, shoot, edit, color, and do graphics for in under one week. James Harrison (former Pittsburgh Steelers Linebacker) held a contest on Instagram in which the reward was a workout session with him in Pittsburgh. We were tasked to shoot it and follow up with a few questions about Unequal and why he uses the product.

A video I helped to create for Weber Grills to showcase the Weber Sear Station® featured on the Genesis® Gas Grills.

I directed these spots for Bonfils Blood Center with the goal of helping them increase financial donations, as well as blood donations. We created a modular campaign that can be changed and updated easily overtime, and shows that people of all ages and demographics are welcome and encouraged to help Bonfils.
A commercial I edited and created motion graphics for, for Merrick Pet Care's dog food. The idea was to show that the dog food is made with such high quality ingredients that even humans can eat it (but I still would not recommend doing that). This commercial was created through PLUS Productions in Boulder, CO.

In 2012 I worked at an ad agency called 'Factory Design Labs'. At the time, one of their prominent clients was Oakley. We received a bunch of RED footage that was piggy backed onto a photo shoot they did, and just for fun I cut these together.
The client ended up loving these and using them, so I suppose it worked out!

MUSIC VIDEO, SAME OLD WAR:
In October of 2013, I was asked to fly to Boston from Denver and direct the first music video from Our Last Night's newest EP titled 'Oak Island'. The song is named "Same Old War".
Since I had been listening to Our Last Night for years, it was a total passion project for me. Matt Wentworth (Guitarist, Our Last Night) came up with an incredible concept that he trusted me to bring to life on a small budget.
Shot on the Canon DSLR platform with minimal lighting, we were able to pull off everything we had hoped to.

'After The Reign' is a short World War II film. It was originally shot in 2010 and abandoned for a while due to many life / work related factors but has recently been un-earthed from the vault. It is currently in post-production with no official release date. This is the intro scene of the film.
