I mainly direct, shoot, and edit videos focusing on travel or raising awareness for causes. I also consult on digital strategies for brands, companies, and individuals. Here's an article about my work, a short interview I did for Adobe, and another one I did with Wrapal that get into more detail.

I shoot with whatever camera is best for the job. I’ve shot with almost every major camera brand, from the highest-end cinema cameras to entry-level DSLRs.
WHich editing program do you use?
I mostly use Premiere Pro CC, but I am also proficient in Final Cut Pro X.
