I was born and raised in the mountains of British Columbia, Canada and spent most of my childhood and adolescents in the small town of Fernie (Population. 4,217). I didn't grow up around pop culture, punk or fashion. I frequented folk music festivals as a child where hippy culture and rastafarianism covered the majority of the people who surrounded me. The only insight I had into my future interests were my dad's David Bowie and Bob Dylan records, and any good film I happened to see at the local theatre. I have always been infatuated with film and music and knew that my future would include these two things heavily.
I left home in 2004 immediately after high school and a year later graduated from the Vancouver Film School with a diploma in Film Production. After trying out the bottom rung of the large-budget Hollywood feature film ladder, I decided to take my own path to becoming a Director. I moved to Calgary in 2006 on an offer to edit private ski movies, something that was familiar to me having grown up in Fernie. I began meeting other artists in Calgary, primarily dancers and models, and started shooting and editing my own experimental pieces.
My passion lies now in Fashion Films, Music Videos, Commercials and Short Films. I have been fortunate to have two fashion editorial films commissioned by the Untitled Magazine (formerly XXXX Magazine) out of London/New York, one of which showed at the 2012 La Jolla Fashion Film Festival. My fashion work has been screened during New York Fashion week and on the runway at LG Fashion Week in Toronto. "Darling This Scene Must End" aired on MTV Australia, and the SIGHT NIGHT PSA was nominated for best PSA at the Alberta Film and Television awards in 2011.
I currently reside in Calgary.
