About me

Over the last few years I have Studied subjects that interested me, looked into people who inspired me, and did work that I enjoyed doing. This led me to understanding a lot about a lot with a focus on Content Development, Production and Marketing. I enjoy thinking about and creating Media because I see it as a connective tissue. Like Synapses connect neurons in the Human brain, Media connects people and greatly effects our subjective realities.

My primary project today is Bootstrapping a Modern/Local online Media Network: Michigan Mainstream. This has been my personal Dojo which has grown with me over the past few years. Through this project I developed  the Showcase Video Series which has allowed me to meet and support local individuals whose story, work, or ideas Interested me. Though the continuous working of my craft and Networking I have had the opportunity to work with some great companies and individuals. I have produced multiple crowd funding videos, Online Courses, About Videos, Product Videos and Instructional Videos. Up until recently I really never said no to a project that interested me. Often this meant working with small to medium sized local businesses with little to no budget. This has made me very resourceful in my efforts and has helped me develop a unique approach to my work.

With the skills and resourcefulness I’ve developed over the the last 5 years along with my main project, my goal is to help local businesses and communities thrive by giving them the connective tissue they need.

If you are interested in working with me you will find some of my previous work below along with a simple contact form.
