Films

I wrote and directed (and mostly edited and produced) some films. Three of them won dozens of film festival awards. Some maybe changed some minds and opened wallets. And others… well, let’s just say a guy’s gotta eat.

Le Mime

A 100-year-old movie camera is discovered in a Parisian flea market with a roll of exposed film inside. When the film is developed, it reveals what is believed to be the earliest known footage of Marcel Marceau –– in fact, scholars of mime believe this may be the very moment that the great entertainer discovered his life’s calling.

For Your Eyes Only

A news report that may or may not be relevant to members of a secret society and I’m not really supposed to say anything more about that. 

Grove Sole

A startup that builds innovative, sustainable fish farms in Spain and Portugal. This is a video I created to help them acquire funding. Yes, I speak Spanish. Also yes, it worked.

All Classical Portland

The venerable broadcaster asked me to create a video commemorating their 30th year. 

PAW Team

A non-profit that provides veterinary services to homeless people’s pets. 

Our Home

A co-housing project with no money, but a ton of heart and a really beautiful vision. Of course I agreed to create some videos for them.

Wayfinding Academy

I was hired to create a recruitment video for this unconventional college.
