Had a great time directing and editing this music video for local artist Razteria.
It’s been a childhood dream of mine to shoot something at the historic Hotel Mac in Pt. Richmond so I’m thrilled I was able to make it happen, and also experiment with some new motion graphics too. Enjoy!
Here is a video I shot earlier this year that was for The 54th Annual CIIS Commencement Ceremony of the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS).
For this video, I was lucky enough to take the lead on the majority of the pieces, including professor and student speeches, an original music video for the band AstraLogik, and a short choir piece as well. Hope you enjoy the ceremony & congrats to all the graduates!
I just want to give a huge thank you to everyone who showed up for the opening reception of my art show, this Tuesday night. It was a really special time to reconnect with some old friends and family and meet some new folks as well. I think with COVID these kinds of live events are more appreciated now than ever. Don’t we all want a little break from the Zoomverse?

This is a podcast I edited & mixed for JET Reflections, a MassArt podcast that explores topics on Justice, Equity, and Transformation (JET) within the MassArt community and beyond. This piece features a discussion between the former president of the school, Kym Pinder, and JET Program Coordinator Zayra Campos (dated September 2020). I hope you enjoy the talk!

This is a keynote series for Cisco, where I worked as an assistant editor. For this project, our team collaborated with both Spinifex Group and George P. Johnson. In this role, l helped ingest and organize media for senior editors, as well as generate multi-cam sequences and run quality control on multiple assets.
I’ve sought out shooting shows, musicals, and dance pieces much more in recent years; from BTS work to live stills. Coming from this world myself makes me have a natural affinity for these spaces and the special energy they hold…also working with great performers like these ones makes the experience of shooting photos even more collaborative and playful.
Working in photojournalism, I’ve been lucky enough to shoot a variety of powerful stories for different Bay Area publications. Some of the topics I’ve covered include natural disasters, the homelessness crisis, and community heroes. I love the unpredictable nature of this work, and how I am allowed to learn something new with each assignment.
Here is a collection of some portraits I’ve made throughout the years of artists, musicians, and thought leaders. I love shooting people at flow in their natural environment when I can just fall into the background and using nature as a backdrop well.
