I’ve been into filmmaking, especially editing, ever since I was in elementary school. Here’s a clip from my early editing days when my brothers, our friends and I made advertisements for spoof products we just made up: In college, I had a film company that produced engineering highlight reels, my cousin’s “how we met” wedding more »

Building My First Bow & Arrows

Back in March I was staying in Cincinnati with my family: my parents, my brother Connor and his girlfriend Molly.

I’ve long kept a cherished word document on my (aging) Macbook. One of the things most important to me, besides the pictures, is my bucket list, which I had titled “Things to do before I die (.docx)”. I thought it would be nice to share to see what, if any, overlap others might have in more »
