Subway Sights

Here’s another video I’m pretty excited to present! It’s on the NYC subway. A place so commonplace we often forget to notice the excitement of movement and bustle.

This is the first video with the new Sony A7rII and it uses some new editing techniques. Read More

Lost & Found by Mayans in Guatemala

A solo hike. A thunderstorm. A search for shelter that landed me with E’qchi’ Mayans in Guatemala.

I travel for new experiences and to understand different cultures. After 4 months of backpacking Colombia, Panama, Nicaragua, Honduras, and Guatemala I decided I wanted to go somewhere no tourist has gone before. It took some debilitating food poisoning the day prior in order to reflect and motivate myself enough to venture… Read More

What do video editing, chess, creativity, entropy, a fulfilling life and intelligence all have in common?

Let me take you for a ride…|| Starting a video project, an essay, or a painting is daunting at first. You have little idea where it will take you, but you start with the idea that it will come together. Living artfully is about applying the process of art to life. The process coincides with the equation for entropy, or likewise, the formula for intelligence; and like chess openings, it is… Read More

San Blas Adventures

After Colombia my intentions were to backpack South America. However, once I got there I landed a job at Habla Ya in Panama City. After Carnivale, I had to make my way to the neighboring country. Despite its proximity, it’s not easy to get from one country to the other cheaply. I have yet to meet a backpacker that braved the overland journey. Last minute plane tickets were $500 one way, so I went with San Blas Adventures on a speed boat tour which was roughly the same price. Now I am making my way up Central America. I finish Nicaragua tomorrow and will head to Honduras. Subscribe to see upcoming videos on Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and reflections on the journey to travel and find...

First real film gig!

For the last month I had an amazing opportunity to explore the best of Panama City and capture it on film. It’s 5AM in San Jose, Costa Rica and I’m about to take a bus to Nicaragua. I’d like to add onto this post later, but I would just like to say that it has been my dream job to work and travel and this was exactly that. I got to learn 4 hours of Spanish every day and not only did I get paid to see the best of Panama City, I also got to explore Bocas Del Toro, a stunningly beautiful island, for 2 weeks. I hope this piece adds to my portfolio and it can open many more opportunities just like that.   For example, maybe I can explore the world with www.worldofbeer.com. I just sent in video my application this morning too (Mom all-nighters are ok if I got an 8 hour bus ride coming up). Anyways, feel free to check out the hustle, and I think sharing it might help my chances. Cheers!...

Tijuana

Nat Geo just ranked Tijuana as a top travel destination for 2016. Unfortunately, this came out AFTER I went. I did not intend to go to Tijuana nor did I intend to make this video. I did not decide to cross the border from San Diego until the morning of. At 7:45AM I was on my way to TJ, but at 7:30AM I still had not decided, was not packed, and was actually still asleep… Read More

Angel’s Landing Hike | Highlights

Check out an action packed 100 second video of Zion National Park’s Angel’s Landing — arguably one of the best short hikes in the United States.

After 3 full days of editing the previous two videos, I got fed up with the rules of documentary / news editing and decided to pursue a more emotional approach. Originally just for fun, I have now refined it to be a bit more presentable. Enjoy and let me know what you think! Read More
