Born and raised on the westside of Los Angeles, I started shooting photos and video at an early age, after receiving a 35mm camera from my grandfather and a HI8 camera from a family friend. It all started with photos and videos of my friends partying, wanting to capture those moments in time forever.
In high school, I starting working as a PA on film shoots and produced a documentary on Hip Hop culture in Los Angeles. After graduation, I attended NYFA in NYC, and focused on short films and documentaries. After receiving an Avid Editing Certification, I landed my first gig as an editor on a Bone Thugs N Harmony Documentary at the age of 19.
In High School I also found my love of music and started playing in bands and touring all around the US and Europe. Music took the front seat for the first few years after High School working at a record label, Recording studios and producing music for other artists which led to working in production as a sound mixer.
Directing and photography came back into my life as all of my passions started molding together, Shooting photos and videos for my music projects as well as friends.
I currently live in Los Angeles, CA with my beautiful wife Lida and our dogs Breezy & Judd. In our down time you can find us at the beach surfing, riding motorcycles or taking a road trip somewhere...
