Hi, I'm an Austin-based filmmaker for Icarus Burning Productions. With clients including The University of Texas, Tastemade,, eHow, smaller local businesses, and more, I've learned a lot from the wide variety of styles that each project required. Throw in short films, music videos, animations, and other passion projects and I have racked up a fun amount of knowhow that I'm thrilled to help others learn!

So, stick around and let's figure out how to make your project go from "thing I want to do" to "thing I did".
