About me 

I  was born and raised on the beautiful North Shore of Oahu in the state of Hawaii. I bought my first video camera and a water housing when I was about 13 years old. With Hawaii’s pristine environment as a backdrop I began taking photographs and making short films, capturing the adventures I would go on across the Hawaiian Islands. In 2011, I moved to Southern California to play water polo and swimming competitively.  A couple years later, I transfered to film school  to pursue my passion towards cinematography and photography. After graduating with my Bachelors in Film and Video Production, I worked full time for Herewith magazine as their online editor and videographer. In mid-2017 I decided to branch off, creating my own digital freelance company.
