About Me

Originally from Ohio, I moved to Charlotte, NC in 2008 after graduation because I wanted to live in a place with sunshine more than 3 months in a year. In my free time, I spend almost all of it with my wife and kids where I take many home videos of us together.

I have a small Youtube channel where I create and edit “glorified versions” of those home movies. Having those memories recorded and stored in a place like Youtube makes it easy for my wife and me and our families to watch these special moments in our lives with our child.

Want to connect and learn more about me? Reach out! Feel free to contact via email, phone, or socials!
