Being the 90’s child that I am, home-video was my first medium as a visual artist. So you could say I’ve been doing this work forever or at least since my friends (and barbies) became movie stars. My productions never ceased throughout each stage of life, and in college my cousin asked me to film her wedding. However, the lightbulb “I could do this as a profession” didn’t go off because I was pursuing a degree in Biology at the time.
I completed the degree, and soon after I moved to North Carolina. In my first few months living on the beach, I met a crossroads. I didn’t feel the inspiration to continue in the direction of marine conservation, and I felt a longing to live a more creative life. To grad-school, or not grad-school, that was the question.
That’s when I met Allie Miller. In the aisle of a small town Hobby Lobby, Allie took interest in one of my paintings (cue me trying to live a more creative life). We became fast friends. She was a wedding photographer, and pretty soon everything clicked that I should turn my longtime love of video into something special.
The rest is history. For the past 6 years, I have traveled to places like Sweden, Aruba, and Alaska to name a few to create films for weddings and businesses. Choosing to live a more creative life has fostered many great adventures. Alpine Tree Films began on the beach in North Carolina, but I now reside in the small mountain town of Buena Vista, Colorado. Life is good. Thank you for taking time to be here.
