About Me

With a background in Anthropology and Photography, I hold a Master’s Degree in Journalism. My storytelling works to illuminate the climate crisis and help distill the complexities of science for the everyday reader. Visual storytelling is a lifelong passion of mine, and I draw from my experiences as an archaeologist and a father of two to connect with communities.

As a cinematographer, I have helped create two award-winning documentary films, On the Record: A Century of Journalism Education at Nevada and Piconland: The Quest for the Perfect Picon Punch, which won Best Nevada Film at the 2023 Dam Short Film Festival

If you enjoy my work and want me to continue, consider buying me a coffee. As a freelancer, every dime matters. Consider this a way to support local independent journalism. If you enjoy landscape photography, consider purchasing a print

When not crafting stories that matter, I travel and camp with my wife and two daughters, tend a garden, bake bread, and play the banjo.

Available for Hire.
