I’ve always had a passion for making images. I love storytelling too. Who doesn’t like a good story? Being a director and cinematographer keeps me involved in every detail of a project, which is exhilarating. But it only works because of the collaboration. A good idea is just that.
I love sailing too. Like photography, I’ve been doing it since I was very young. My instinct is to push the boundaries, find the limits of a situation – knowing that I’m in control and trying not to fall into a comfort zone. When I’m on a boat, I take the responsibility very seriously because there are other people on the boat and Mother Nature can get wily in a hurry. It’s all connected – being humble in the face of creation, exploring ideas, searching for a touch of originality.
New Orleans is my home. I think that has something to do with the eclectic nature of my work.
And so I’m evolving and opening new doors along the way. I love directing commercials because they are all about craft and the language of cinema and my art projects give me a chance to experiment and grow. Still photography is where I discovered the magic of creating images. I am devoted to detail and cutting edge technology.
That’s what these different brands are about. The language of filmmaking evolves. I’m a student for life.
