I'm the Filmmaker in Residence at IDEO.

Usually, I work as Director and Cinematographer specializing in documentary storytelling.

Shooting locations have included rural Galicia, the floor of Mobile World Congress, in morgues, and once in Rattlesnake Heaven. That’s what a Texas rancher called his 100-year-old oil pump house. Rattlesnake Heaven is exactly what I’d call Joe Mayo Hell.

Behind the camera is typically where I'm happiest, shooting anything that looks or feels like a documentary. I’ll do what it takes to tell a great story, though. Much of my experience has involved producing, directing, shooting, editing, coloring, and composing graphics to deliver engaging work.

I live in San Francisco with ShafShelby, and Maser.
