I ADD VALUE BEYOND VIDEO AND PHOTO
I see the big picture, and I operate from a business mind in startup mode. I was the first and only employee at ActiveJunky.com for a long time. I did all the jobs. Literally. Photographer, Videographer, Copywriter, Editor, Marketer, Salesman, Customer Service Rep, Account Manager… they let me try everything! I’m incredibly grateful for those opportunities because they taught me how to deliver results from every angle. Whether you need to launch a product, tell your brand’s story, recap your annual event or just make a piece of internal content for the HR recruiting team... I understand there is a larger goal behind the video and I will help you achieve it.
I EXCEL ON-LOCATION IN ONE-TAKE-ONLY SITUATIONS
I've been fortunate enough to hone my craft while working with exceptional outdoor athletes in remote, rugged locations around the world. Some of these projects pushed me to my physical and emotional limits, and taught me to the importance of patience and execution during high stakes moments. Whether you’ve spent 6 hours climbing a powder-covered mountain or $600k flying your team in from around the country, I understand exactly what “we-only-get-one-shot” REALLY means and I deliver on that expectation.
I FLEW REAL PLANES Before drones
Anyone can read a few manuals and take a test to get a drone license now. My passion for flying extends back into my childhood! My Uncle was a Navy pilot and continues to fly commercial airlines. My favorite movie of all time is Top Gun, I've watched it hundreds of time. I had to fly. After college I invested thousands of dollars in 40+ hours of real flight training to get my FAA Private Pilot’s license, and my creative eye transitioned to drone content flawlessly.
I'M active in art direction
Simply pressing record is a complete disservice to you. Most content creators will do what you tell them to do, and only that. I pride myself on taking a hands-on approach. I present ideas to you beforehand and make strategic suggestions and really outline the look and feel of the video with you. Visualizing the story generates our shot-list, which is then tweaked to achieve the desired outcome.
