Capturing Light For Over A Decade...
I spent most of my twenties in New York as a rock bassist / bartender chasing after the dream of writing commercial music for TV & Film. This landed into some amazing post production houses surrounded by talented, inspired people. Very quickly, I fell in love with the visual side of video production and dove into editing and filming, full-time. 
After a few fantastic years shooting and editing at a beauty brand, Bumble and bumble, I decided it was time to move on. I sold my belongings, packed up my motorcycle with some clothes, a tent, sleeping bag, as well as my laptop and DSLR, then I drove across the country to San Diego. 
At age 30, my dream was to start a company dedicated to quality video production and to have fun doing it. After a few years, I found amazing production partners while working at a local television station. Together, with Vic Alavi and Carlos Foster we built Blue Barn Creative, which officially launched in 2012. 
As a Co-Founder, and Director of Photography, I specialize in camerawork, short format editing (5 to 90 second commercial videos), as well as video marketing consultation. When not filming, I'm home with my lovely wife Sarah and our 3 little munchkin kids.

Product Videos for Sunday Scaries CBD Gummies
In our most recent spot, we're off to the beach to examine the anxieties of a modern social media influencer. Perhaps Unicorn Jerky (CBD Gummies) can help.
For the second spot below, the Super Bowl was fast approaching and our client wanted to create a comedy narrative to show off their CBD gummies, somehow involving football. We wrote and produced this piece the bring the "Sunday Scaries" idea to life. Sunday Scaries are the feelings you get on Sundays, totally overwhelmed, thinking about all of the things you have to do on Monday. We tried bring those anxieties to life and present the CBD gummies as a way to help you say "screw you, Monday".
