I'm a Boston-based filmmaker/photographer.
Through videography, photography and traveling, I have shaped a business around helping people craft their story and share their message. In early 2016, I launched a YouTube channel and a website dedicated to this philosophy. Shortly after this, I moved to Korea to teach English to middle school students. While in Korea, I was able to immerse myself into the culture and learn about the world and myself in the process. After the one-year contract ended, I backpacked Southeast Asia for four months before returning home to America. I am now back in the Boston area as continue to grow my business and serve others with my skills and passion.
I find passion in being a connector. Whether it's helping an individual find their next job, or bringing value to an organization via a proven product or service.
It’s the human interaction that makes what I do so enjoyable.
As a result of my ability to easily connect and from my years of experience working with high-ranking business officials in the global marketplace, I have been a top performer throughout my career. Currently, I stand as the Director of Business Development at Geneva Capital Group, a global Network of M&A, Corporate Finance and Strategy Firms that help to support companies and entrepreneurs across many different countries and industries.
