I started my video production business here in Palm Springs, CA because I have found there are so many stories to tell. I have been telling visual stories from a very young age.

When I was around 12, my best friend Mike and I “borrowed” my mom’s video camera. I can remember creating a skit where Mike would stand in the living room and pretend to learn how to juggle. We were careful to make sure that the bean bags he was juggling would go out of the top of the frame. We would make him freeze in a certain position and I would cut the camera. I’d run into frame and grab the bean bag out of the shot while he was still frozen, and then we would then start the camera back up again and he would pretend to be bewildered at where the bean bag could have gone. We’d repeat this until at one point when I started the camera I tossed all the bean bags into frame as if they all came out of nowhere. When I showed it to my family, they loved it and wanted me to make more. I haven’t stopped.

It was silly kids playing with new technology, but as I went to college much later to study film I realized we weren’t so silly after all. We were playing with story structure, framing, comedic timing, etc.

Today I would still consider myself at heart a silly kid playing with new technology. I’m still constantly fascinated with new and innovative ways of telling stories. I love playing with new gear as it becomes available. And I still love the joy that comes from an audience watching something I create.
