I am a storyteller at heart. I love capturing amazing moments – moments that change lives and inspire others.
Early on, I knew that I had a passion for storytelling. After finding my grandparents’ camcorder, I found myself creating my own stories, learning technology and pushing the limit with the little equipment I had at the time.
In college, I had the opportunity to use my talents to help my university’s football team. The coaches had me create special projects – anything from posters, music and videos that they would use with the team or on a recruiting visit.
Working with the University of Toledo led me the opportunity to work as an intern in the New Media department with the Cleveland Browns. 6 years later (and several front office changes) I found myself as the Manager of the Content & Production Department.
In 2015, I returned to my hometown of Wooster, Ohio to join the staff of Grace Church – the areas largest and fastest growing church. With a smaller staff, I had a much more versatile role ranging anywhere from taking the full load of production of a video, directing live broadcasts, writing, and managing interns and volunteers. As a member of the communications staff, I often found myself creating the artwork for a sermon series or developing a social media plan. Here, I really focused on self-leadership and began understanding the benefits of personal development.
In 2018 I was recruited to join the staff of a production company called Herdmark Media. Our productions focus on the agriculture industry. As the Creative Director, I am continuing to expand my skills and experience, loving every day with the company.
I have been extremely blessed to have the opportunities I have had so far and I could not have done it without the support of my beautiful wife, Caroline, 5 year old son, Emmett and new daughter, Evelyn.
