About

Exposure to different ways of thinking and living is essential to understanding the impact we can have on the world around us.   Being connected to the world through images is what brings me joy. I’m most comfortable behind the camera —filming a feature length film, lighting a comedy show or following the quarterback as he scores.  Helping others is also important to me, and that’s why I try to share my knowledge. One way is through teaching, and another way is through my production company HUMAN+NATURE. My wife and I started this company because we believe in helping good causes. We create documentaries for non-profits that get people excited about the positive work going on in Philadelphia. I consider myself lucky, as I have been able to travel the world and meet so many people that have influenced me in my art as well as in my life.
