  • Au Pair Adventures Promo Video

    Au Pair Adventures

    Shot, edited, and produced. This is a video I put together for Au Pair Adventures (aupairadventures.com) while on their Western Sun Tour. All shot on the road from San Francisco to Yosemite to Las Vegas down historic Route 66 to Lake Havasu & Los Angeles. Thanks Joe Stebbins for bringing me on board!

  • MISSADVENTURES

    missadventures

    Shot, edited, and produced. MISSADVENTURES is an all-girls travel show crew from Toronto. Unlike most travel shows, we don’t pack up and leave for months or years. We want to make traveling accessible and doable for girls our age who have full-time jobs and limited budgets. We want to urge them to skip the all-inclusive beach vacation and travel to more exotic places. We do it with humour and style, but still provide valuable tips along the way.

  • Milton 4.0

David - Prometheus

Happy Birthday, David!

If you know me, you’d know how much I love sci-fi… specifically robots and artificial intelligence. I was already pretty hyped up about Ridley Scott’s Prometheus so this little sub-trailer/promo video on David (Michael Fassbender) just got me a little bit more excited… see for yourself!
