I was born and raised in Kansas, over 700 miles from the nearest drop of saltwater. Growing up, my goal was to become a chiropractor until I was inspired by a video on YouTube made by DevinSuperTramp that changed my life. I then decided to become a cinematographer and upon graduation from high school, took a trip to Hawai’i. I immediately fell in love with nature and the arts and was inspired to showcase the raw beauty of the islands to the world. I took a leap and moved to Maui to pursue this dream of becoming a filmmaker. All free time I had was spent adventuring, discovering and learning more about the islands, its people and its culture and capturing bits of it on film.
Filmmaking has given me the opportunity to meet people around the world, delve into new cultures, and take an emotion or feeling and express it into a piece of art that I share with the world.
My intent with film is to showcase beautiful destinations worldwide from a unique perspective and inspire people to live a life fulfilled by helping the world around us.
