Digital Media Producer + Visual Storyteller

Share profile

Hailing from rural Western Pennsylvania, where I developed into a rare breed of nerd, artist, athlete and musician — I opted to trade in my backwoods roots for the Steel City to pursue a career in digital media.

After six years of cultivating a solid foundation built upon a mastery of multimedia theory, strategy, tools and delivery systems — I found myself leaving the beloved city of Pittsburgh behind in favor of the marvelous mountain town of Park City, Utah.

As a digital media producer and visual communicator, I have spent nearly a decade creating award-winning content with a focus on outdoor recreation, music, sports, arts and entertainment. Having worked on a wide variety of projects ranging from documentary storytelling, live television, video production, podcasting and photography — to print, design, social media and advertising — I possess a versatile skill set which allows me to adapt and grow among the ever-expanding universe of multiplatform media industries.

Currently based in downtown Salt Lake City, I strive to surround myself with extraordinary people. I'm constantly exploring how I can apply my efforts to help make a positive social impact on the communities in which I'm involved.
