I’m a director. I mostly work in commercials but I also make documentaries and music videos. I’ve worked with a bunch of brands and bands – big and small – and some of that work has gotten awards and views and media attention, which is great.

My short documentary “On Days Like These We Must Surf” (2016) about a crazy group of surfers who chase icy waves on The Great Lakes, played at a number of festivals worldwide and was selected as a Vimeo Staff Pick. My latest doc, “The Scroll of The Prophet Isaiah” (2019) is about a man I discovered in Niagara Falls, NY who believes that God instructed him to decorate his home in an incredibly elaborate way in order to warn people the judgement day is upon us. The film also received a Vimeo Staff Pick and is now making the rounds on the festival circuit.

I grew up in Rochester, NY, got my degree from The University of Toronto and currently live there with my girlfriend and lazy French Bulldog, Biggie Smalls.
