While I am most-known for my work with UCLA Gymnastics, I also do a lot of freelance work. I love being a freelancer, as it allows me the opportunity to meet new people and work in fresh environments. As you'll see below, some of my freelance work is produced for various clients, while others are self-produced passion projects. I shot and edited all of the videos on this page (unless otherwise noted).
World Cup Tonight Open 6/26
Show Open (for Fox Sports)
One of nearly 30 pieces I edited for Fox Sports’ coverage of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. This piece is short, but needed to be delivered within an hour of the last game of the day. The quick turnaround time meant I was cutting as the matches were in progress, and then had to quickly color & mix before it went to air. (Editor)

After winning a Super Bowl, former NFL player Michael Robinson gives back to the community from which he came. (Post Story Producer/Editor)
"Milkshake" Behind-the-Scenes // March 2018
Social Media Promo, Client: Brittany Snow & Prodajsa USA
I shot behind-the-scenes on the set of Brittany Snow’s short film and directorial debut, “Milkshake.” The cast included Brittany’s Pitch Perfect castmates Anna Camp and Chrissie Fit, as well as JR Bourne (Teen Wolf), and Shree Crooks (Captain Fantastic, The Glass Castle). This particular video was made for social media and was posted on Brittany’s Instagram.
Why I Spoke Up: Rachael Denhollander // December 2017
Long before Rachael Denhollander rose to national prominence as the leader of the army of survivors who took down disgraced former doctor Larry Nassar, she was vilified and branded as a liar by a disbelieving gymnastics community. The mainstream media did not pay any attention to this story until Nassar’s 2018 sentencing. Before people were listening, a friend and I self-funded and produced this video to give brave women such as Rachael a platform to share their stories.

The 2017 AVP Hermosa Beach Open was more than just another stop on the tour for two-time Olympian Sean Rosenthal; it was his return home.

In 2012, Kyla Ross brought home a gold medal at the London Olympics as a member of the Fierce Five. Ross continued to train for the 2016 Olympics, before ultimately deciding to retire from elite gymnastics to join the UCLA Gymnastics team.
Charlotte Drury: Flying Towards Rio // April 2016
Charlotte Drury was an Olympic hopeful in trampoline. Unfortunately she suffered an injury right before the Olympics, but I still love this video because it introduced me to one of my best friends.
