About Me

Naturalist. Researcher. Filmmaker. Visual Storyteller. 
As the great Steve Irwin once said, "education is all about being excited about something".  I want to be able to pass on my passion to others and video is a way to do that. Growing up with a deep love for wildlife,  I've been studying the natural world all my life. It wasn't until I immersed myself in photography and cinematography, however, that I was able to truly share this passion.
 
I am a biologist and conservationist at heart, so every time I film and share a moose feeding, a rattlesnake coiled and rattling, or tell the story of how to protect our freshwater turtles, it fills me with absolute joy. Using film as my media, I aim to share my passion with the planet, by showing the stories and unearthing the mysteries of the great, wild world. 
 
I have worked with high production film crews for series like CBC's Nature of Things, with the majority of my work lying in sequence work and set building. I also bring the experience of an avid drone pilot and time-lapse creator. In addition to my cinematography experience, I have 8 years experience researching wildlife and am most comfortable when I'm in Ontario's natural habitat. Although I work extremely well in a team, the majority of my work is done solo. With my knowledge and experience organizing and producing beautiful shots, rest assured, your vision is safe in my hands.
