The World Is Made
Of The Stories We Tell.
I work with social impact organizations and mission driven businesses with authentic stories to share. As a filmmaker of Canadian-Indigenous descent I also specialize in First Nations and Indigenous productions.
A few of my clients: City of Toronto, Lakehead University, Magnet/Ryerson University, National Aboriginal Day, Province of British Columbia, Sigma Canada, the Gerstein Crisis Centre
Every partnership begins with a compelling story, shared values, and above all trust – no project is too small or too large.
I’m regularly hired as an independent director/filmmaker, commissioned as a cinematographer/director of photography working under the vision of a director and called upon to collaborate with teams/agencies to help realize larger projects.
I wear multiple hats:
