Moment that sparked your passion
Seeing the first couple videos I produced and directed go from idea to completion early in my career. I loved everything about – – see an idea come to life, collaborating with other folks, making adjustments along the way, etc. Just remember feeling very gratified, content and proud of the videos, but maybe moreso with the act of creation.
Desert island movie
Impossible to pick one, but Amelie and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off are the two I keep coming back to in my head.
“Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don’t be afraid.” – Frederick Buechner
Hiking, mushroom hunting (specifically chanterelles and morels), reading (all genres, but I lean heavily into historical non-fiction), all things music (live shows, finding new music, making playlists, sharing music)
Favorite Childhood Memory
I grew up spending a month each summer at a camp in the Ozarks. We got to ride horses, shoot guns, wander around the woods and creeks and just generally have a great time. I still have many close friendships from the years I went there.
