I believe what I do is important.
I believe in creativity.
I believe in connection.
I believe in story telling.
And I believe in quality.
Which is why it's no surprise that I am completely and totally
captivated and infatuated with all aspects of production and social media.
I take pride in my professionalism yet playful energy that I bring to the table.
(I'm a firm believer that energy and attitude is everything.)
Having this mentality without question makes it is easier for me to connect with those around me,
and put the intimidation factor to rest while my lens is pointed in their direction.
My experience lies within interiors, portraiture,
product, website photography / videography branding, weddings, corporate interviews, commercials, documentary films,
speaking engagements, motorsports, and any other type of events you could possibly think of.
I have been working professionally with imagery and film for the last 10 years..
but, my obsession started the first time I picked up a video camera in my 4th grade computer class.
(Which is when I knew this was it for me.)
Before gaining the courage to start my own business, I worked as a Marketing Manager in Denver Colorado,
where my focus was product photography, designing magazine advertisements, and running social media platforms.
To my most recent experience as the Creative Content Director for a production company where I shot just about everything.
During this roll I was a key player in the creative process for productions for brands such as Dunn & Bradstreet, iHop, Khov's Four Seasons, Craft Beer and Brewing Magazine, and was a lead cinematographer on a documentary film called "Mallory."
But 3 years ago when Covid hit, I finally decided to cannon ball into all that it means to be an independent creator.
I took all of the experience and knowledge I gained working along side others over the years, and started weed whacking my own path. Vital Focus to me, embodies all that it means to live your life to it's fullest potential. To wake up each day and chase after things that absolutely spark that internal fire, ideas that keep you up at night, and make all the hours and sacrafice you put in feel irrelevant. I believe as a species, it is our due diligence to push ourselves and live every single day as if it might be your last. I chose the name Vital Focus Media because it's the common ground between drivers, mechanics, media, and partners alike. While shooting motorsports, there is no such thing as a "re-do" ...every single person on the track absolutely has to be on their A game. If a driver makes an error, it could be catastrophic. If a mechanic forgets to nut and bolt check, it could end their weekend. And if I miss a shot, there are no second chances. Every single person standing behind a team, we all have one thing in common. Vital. Focus.
I am on a mission to continue to grow and develop, to build long term relationships,
and to challenge and push the limits.
Paint me a picture of what it is you're looking for,
and know that I am both eager and exited to work together
to bring those visions to life.
I can't wait to get to know you!
