ABOUT ME

INSTAGRAM

Historically a graphic designer, my main gigs now are film making, videography and photography for advertising. I love the idea of using real stories to illustrate the mission and goals of a business. I think that’s why the majority of my work is in the style of a documentary.

I currently work at Generator Strategy Advertising in charge of video. I’ve had the pleasure of working closely with great people from Tbaytel, the City of Thunder Bay, Confederation College, Lakehead University, the Canadian Mental Health Association, Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre, Fresh Air, and many more.

Rise & Run

SHORT | ADVERTISING  

ART DIRECTION: Heather Cranston.  AGENCY: Generator

Fresh Air is a high end outdoors and sporting shop here in Thunder Bay. These guys and gals rule. They’ve been in the business for decades and totally deserve content that reflects their taste, style, commitment to quality, and belief system as truly passionate people.

This film tries to channel those early morning feelings, using an emotional but serious tone throughout. We wanted an authentic early morning feel, so we shot around 5 am. Not suprizingly, the light was sweet. 

Allie’s Hope Air Story

MINI DOC | ADVERTISING  

AGENCY: Generator

Hope Air is a charity that provides free flights to medical care.  We spent a little more than an afternoon with Allie and her mom, Julie gathering their story. A diagnosis like Allie’s at such a young age is devestaing to hear. 

Her courage in telling this story was very moving, my bud Robin Moss held it together during the interviews, leading to some great storytelling content.
