About Me

With a background in Anthropology and Photography, I hold a Master’s Degree in Journalism. My storytelling works to not just illuminate the climate crisis, but 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 in order 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 one Best Nevada Film at the 2023 Dam Short Film Festival

If you enjoy my work and want me to continue, consider buying me a cup of 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 can be found traveling and camping with my wife and two daughters, tending a garden, baking bread, and playing the banjo. As an avid conservationist, everything I do is guided by the wisdom of Nature. 

Available for Hire.
