My self-summary
I was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan and moved to LA in 2010.

For 5 years, I've lived in an intentional community south of Korea Town. My friends here inspire me to be more creative, a DIYer (DITogether is better!), a leader rather than follower, and a better communicator. For about a year, I lived in an artist residency house / music and art venue in Lincoln Heights. If you go to a lot of shows, you might be able to guess the name.

I've been a bike commuter for a few years now, and ride between 12 and 30 miles a day. I believe in alternative transportation. By choice, I haven't owned a car since 2011.

I am creative, curious, and vibrant.
What I’m doing with my life
Learning fermentation. Turning myself into a pickle.

On the side, I'm a freelance video editor. I work on documentaries, television, web video, music videos, commercials, and short films.

The six things I could never do without
My intentional community, my bike, beer, podcasts, a funky beat and a dance floor.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What stories I want to tell when I'm an old man. Then I try to live my life like a story I want to tell.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having a drink with friends. Out at a show. Dancing.
You should message me if
If you're interested in shooting a film on super 8, hand processing the film in the basement, and then projecting it until it melts. If you want to go on a bike ride in the LA River.
