Video Producer, Owner

I picked up my first camera when I was 7 and it just took off from there; home videos, skate videos, family photoshoots, animations… Starting a video business happened by accident actually; I wanted to just be a freelance artist with creative photography and videos. But my connections and recently acquired business skills, led me to creating commercials and helping other businesses grow, with upgraded media quality and their brand stories. Today, my wife (Kristina) and I work together with our clients on strategy, script-writing and some productions; and we have been honored to work with some really awesome companies; some being all the way across America; and we have been very thankful for this growth. At the end of the day, I am just a 7 yr old with a camera and a lot of nerdy tech to play with while editing the video; and I love that.
