I am a San Francisco Bay Area native and a graduate of San Francisco State University with a major in Film and a Minor in Spanish. Making videos + photos have been my passion since I was thirteen. My forerunner to filmmaking was drawing, along with learning to play the piano. I've always enjoyed the visual-auditory dynamic of mixing moving imagery with music, which comes from an innate interest in image composition, motion and the above all, a love of storytelling.
My skills in Writing/Directing, Editing, Motion Graphics & Videography come from years of honing my craft, being resourceful when options were few and just having a whole lot of fun. I started with my parents old VHS camera, where you had to lug around the VCR, while you were shooting. As a freshman in High School I graduated to a PC running Adobe Premiere 4.0 and over the years, through internships, various classes and self-initiative I learned Final Cut Pro, After FX, Photoshop, Illustrator, Lightwave 3D and more, allowing me to visualize what I had once only imagined. I now work strictly on Macs, running Final Cut Studio, The Adobe Creative & Production Suite.
Although based in Prague, I split my work between the San Francisco Bay Area and Europe and have shot videos in over 10 countries.
True passion for your work is the only way to live!
