How I Got Here

Luck. Lots of luck. 

After getting an internship on Alton Brown's Good Eats, I managed to eventually get into the world of music, shooting music festivals and figuring it all out as I went. While producing, shooting, and editing festival promos and a few short films, Tim McGraw's camp called me up and asked me to go out on the road as tour documentarian in 2011. Like I said, pure luck (and a couple good references).

A year later, Zac Brown Band came calling and hired me as the director of this production company, Southern Reel. After 3 amazing, long, years, a couple music videos, and a Dave Grohl documentary, In 2014, I decided to get out of the music business and focus on freelancing in the indie/commercial world.

And here we are, half a million miles later, still traveling the country, telling peoples stories, and calling it work. Luckily.
