With a background in Anthropology and Photography, I hold a Master’s Degree in Journalism. My storytelling works to not just illuminate the climate crisis, but help distill the complexities of science for the everyday reader. Visual storytelling is a lifelong passion of mine and I draw from my experiences as an archaeologist and a father of two in order to connect with communities.

As a cinematographer, I have helped create two award-winning documentary films, On the Record: A century of Journalism Education at Nevada and Piconland: The Quest for the Perfect Picon Punch, which one Best Nevada Film at the 2023 Dam Short Film Festival
