Freelance photographer and director, and founder of the director’s collective WEARRIVE.

With 16 years of working as a photographer and filmmaker I bring with me not just enormous experience, but also a creativity and passion that just gets stronger with time.

I pride myself on always delivering cinematic images and storytelling no matter what the project is. No project or assignment is too big or too small. Simply get in touch to discuss your project and needs, and I will do my best to help you.

With a background in photojournalism, which guarantees authenticity and heart in every frame, I have made the transition to commercial photographer and documentary film maker.

You’ve heard my story, now let me tell yours.
