Sometimes I make my own films, sometimes I make films for other people, and sometimes I help make other people's films better. Either way my goal is always the same: to get people to feel, think, and engage when they watch something I've made.
I'm also a commercial video producer and motion graphics artist. Some career highlights: I produced, directed, and edited AN AMERICAN ASCENT, a documentary about the first team of African-American mountaineers to attempt Denali. It won many festival "best" awards, screened coast to coast, opened season 9 of AfroPop on PBS, and was selected by the Obama White House to screen at an official White House event. I had a two season stint as Senior Producer for the Emmy-winning Montana PBS series TERRA, and an won an Emmy and Western Writers Spur Award for my editorial work on the nationally televised PBS documentary INDIAN RELAY. I co-produced and edited the award-winning documentary SOURCE TO SEA and have produced films for the National Park Service, and National 4-H Council. My commercial work includes producing the GET LOST, and HIGH PLAINS broadcast campaigns for Montana Tourism and various other projects for Vasque, First Interstate Bank, Iqra Fund, and on1 Photography. I'm based in Portland, Oregon. I sometimes teach doc classes at NW Documentary and I have an MFA in film.
