For years I have had the pleasure of providing professional end to end digital media production for a variety of clients and businesses. Creating custom content through video production, photography, branded content, drone services, & more.
Most recently I have produced and created content for the Nevada Gold Mines + Economic Geological Society, Buddies Brand, and Copy Accelerator.
In the fall of 2015, I began attending San Francisco State University and graduated in 2019. Earning a Bachelor of Arts in Cinema, with an emphasis in documentary film & cinematography.
In 2020, I joined Group Nine Media as an Associate Producer. I helped to create original branded content for THRILLIST, SEEKER, NOWTHIS, & DODO. Partnering with clients such as Nissan, Lays, Microsoft, & More.
Since then I have partnered with brands like JAMES BLAND PRODUCTIONS, RED PANEL CREATIVE, BLEND LABS INC., SPG EDU INC., & More.
In 2018, my passion projects began to focus on short form documentary narratives. My favorite of these passion projects is the documentary film, "Left Behind Children"/ “Liu Shou” (2018).The film was awarded an achievement in "PRODUCTION" at THE 59th annual Film Finals hosted by the San Francisco State University Cinema Department. In addition, the film "Left Behind Children" was slated to screen in the Poppy Jasper 2020 International Film Festival. However, the festival was postponed due to the recent Covid-19 pandemic and will screen this April - 2021.
In search of a comedic project, I collaborated with Graham Allan Law. Along with a crew of artists, actors, skateboarders, & musicians we created the mockumentary short, "LOVING LAMANTIS" (2019). The story follows Lamantis, a hopeless musician who is trying to build back the bridges he recently had burned. And it all takes place within the San Francisco underground music scene.
Departing the city, Joe Barnett (Director) & I , filmed the equestrian features of the documentary short,THE TRUE HISTORY OF THE PONY EXPRESS (2019). We took to the rural Northern Californian hills, and were lucky enough to find kind friends who supported the film, in the little country town of La Honda.
Around Spring of 2018, John Fields (Director) & I, crossed the border and travelled to Rosarito, Mexico. In a return to fictional narrative, we produced and filmed the documentary short,
"EL DIBUJANTE" (2019). A poetic tale of artist Hugo Crosthwaite.
I have produced short films such as, LEMON CAKE (2019). A silent film in black and white. Exposing the inner turmoil of an older woman named Sarah and a not so happy birthday. The short film has screened at the Roxie Theatre in San Francisco, in New York's 8th Annual Chain Film Festival, and at the Imagine India Festival,International Film Festival XX Edition - Madrid 2021.
While attending SFSU, I collaborated with my cohorts to produce and promote live events such as the "San Francisco State University's 2018 Film Finals". While programming this event, I developed a passion for archiving media, experimental (other) cinema, and cinematheque ( festival programming)
In the summer of 2018, I spent two months exploring Huangshan & Harbin China studying & producing documentary film. During that time I worked with a wonderful crew of fellow SFSU cinema graduates to produce "Left Behind Children".
While still attending SFSU, I was hired as a Camera Operator for the feature documentary film, "The Soul of Music" (unreleased), working under the direction Prof. Weimin Zhang of San Francisco State University and produced in Harbin, China.
