I’m a journalist, photographer, and filmmaker.
My passion is storytelling, in whatever form it takes.
I have gone on assignment to cover the Standing Rock oil pipeline protest, embedded with U.S. Special Forces in Afghanistan, and even profiled influential people like Travis Pastrana and Jim O’Heir.
My stories have been published in a variety of publications both digital and print (with a focus on narrative long form), which include breaking news that has been picked up by Business Insider, Army Times, Defense One, Washington Times, Washington Post, and Stars & Stripes.
A few of my stories:
I pride myself on the ability to go on assignment knowing that I have all the tools at my disposal to tell a story in it’s fullest. Whether it has been capturing the unique color in a beautiful landscape, or relaying the emotion in a soldier’s facial expression, I try to find the story every time I bring the camera to my eye.
A few of my photographs:
I have authored or been involved in many books to date, with most work done in the veteran and military non-fiction space. Although I will always have a passion to tell these important stories, I plan on delving into fiction and children’s picture books in the near future.
As a relative newcomer to the world of film and television, I was fortunate to find and work with some incredible, talented people which resulted in an award-winning short narrative film and an award-winning feature-length documentary.
Those experiences hooked me, and I’ve since gone on to co-host a non-scripted series on the History Channel, be involved in multiple documentaries, and film a web series based on my journalism assignments.
I’ve worked both behind and in front of the camera. I’ve even delved into screenwriting, to include writing my first animated short, which was released in December 2018.
I’m always down to come on a podcast, answer questions about my work, or talk about possible collaborations. And of course, if you have a tip on a possible story I may be interested in covering, don’t hesitate to send me a brief description of what you have in mind.
