In August of 2020, I was brought on to document a month-long motorcycle trip, starting in Toronto and ending in Tofino, Canada. The trip was turned into an 8-part Youtube Series, with each episode being about 10+ minutes. An 80-minute mastercut of all of the adventures can be found below!
I got to work with some absolute legends on this trip to document a boat tour through the Komodo Islands in Indonesia. The photos and footage I shot were used in a promotional campaign for the boat tour client, as well as a couple of related social media outlets. The video can be found on @highonlife's instagram profile, but here's a clip I put together of the trip on the left!
Created a promotional video for FML Adventure's 2021 Cross-Canada bookings! Both my own and FML's footage was used as B-Roll and the edit sequences.
Worked with Danny McGee (@mcgee) to create two promotional video sets for U30 Experiences. Both the Belize and Guatemala videos were shot on location by Danny and then put together by myself. Alongside the full length YouTube videos shown below, shorter Instagram post (3:4 aspect ratio) and Instagram story files were delivered. The project was a blast to work on!
Between friends crashing their mopeds, getting my shoes stolen by dogs, and stumbling upon some hidden gems of the island, my one month in Lombok, Indonesia in Fall 2019 was one for the vlog greats.

This video was special in many ways but one stands out to me. One of the most important (if not the most important) aspects of any video is the story and narrative. There are many ways of telling a story, but I wanted to try something unique with this video. At the end of the week-long retreat, I led each member into the jungle to set up a private "interview" with the camera where they can share their story on the retreat. With each person, I made sure they were comfortable with being honest about their experience and left a few prompts in case they were stuck. Then I left and said to come grab me once they've shared all they wanted to.
Needless to say, I was nervous giving up the reigns to the most important element of the video, but the result was amazing. Somehow, everyone's story was very similar, inspiring, and encapsulated all the key events of the retreat. I am extremely grateful for everyone that shared and help tell the story of this amazing week.
