Hello.

I am an Art Director who lives in Portland, Oregon. I make videos, websites, interactive experiences, iOS applications, music, and print pieces. I also shoot photographs.

What's more, I love playing softball, making movies, and will occasionally write down thoughts in an online journal. I'm highly critical of the band Aerosmith and do not like vegetables. I collect vintage video games, computers, and vinyl.

In all things, I am dedicated to remaining rad.

Hyland Vision Video

The Hyland Vision Video is a promotional piece celebrating Hyland Software, an Ohio based company that develops an ECM and process management software suite called OnBase.

While assisting in the launch of a new brand, I spent two weeks in Cleveland shooting footage of Hyland employees at work and at play, focusing on how the passions of Hyland's employees informs the work they do. The project also included footage with customers and a collection of still photos to be used in later marketing initiatives.

Once back in Portland, I wrote the soundtrack and recorded it at Jackpot Recording under the engineering genius of Larry Crane. The opportunity to handle every aspect of the video from cinematography, sound, color grading and editing was incredibly rewarding.

AMEX BIP

American Express BIP (Buyer Initiated Payments) is a digital service for businesses to easily handle payment processing across multiple vendors. This short animated video explains how BIP works as well as the benefits offered to those who use it.

To be a bit more playful with an often traditionally dry subject, an approach was taken to frame the subject matter as a 60's style educational filmstrip.

The music for this video represents possibly the most fun I've ever had in composing. Tapping into an authentic vein of youtube sourced influences along with a healthy dose of Moody Blues plus Ren and Stimpy, I believe I found a perfect match for the visual style and concept.

Bar League

Bar League was created to make running a league simple and playing softball even more fun. It offers users an easy way to post final scores or create advanced play-by-play game accounts that anyone can view in real time.

As a softball coach and a player with friends who run leagues, it was always a hassle to disseminate the details and scores of league games. Being an iOS developer, I saw an opportunity to create the sort of application I would want to use. After 9 months in development, Bar League launched in the spring of 2014 and continues to improve with user feedback.

High and Outside

A documentary film, High and Outside examines a diverse group of Portlanders who have been playing softball nearly every Sunday since 1998 in a dilapidated school yard. Interviews with players, past and present, provide a unique look at what can happen when an organic pickup softball game becomes deeply embedded in the lives of not only those who play it, but also in the neighborhood that hosts it. The film also explores the nature of community as well as humanity and its connection to sports.

More information about my role in the film can be found in this OPB Q&A.

Belong to the Future

Produced to promote the latest release of Adobe Creative Suite, this video communicates how Adobe helps content creators meet the new way media is being consumed.

Wrapped in the concept of a stray transmission from the near future, various fun effects were created to "glitch" the video including de-resolution and ascii art versions of frames intermixed with digital noise created by filming abstract shapes and then damaging the DV tape to cause odd effects to emerge.

Cinco Pesos

Cinco Pesos is a short film that explores dark subject matter with a touch of levity.

Filmed during a few days during the peak of summer in the Oregon badlands, the film uses a few experimental techniques to create a sense of unease and psychedelic wonder. Many shots were conducted on a monopod in high wind and then processed with software optical stabilization, creating a strange warble in the field of view even though objects in the foreground are steady.
