Hi there! I’m a lifelong media professional with a love for writing, photography, marketing and branding. Pleased to meet you!
I can storyboard, produce, shoot and edit video.
Here’s one I shot on location in Montreal for a Japanese brand of shears that needed to break into North America (and oh, how they did).
Then we did it in French.
That client hired me to shoot a similar branding video in other locations, including Japan. Here’s one from Los Angeles.
I worked with a startup, XO Styling Iron, and social influencers, to produce these short Instagram-ready videos.
I shot this short pre-show promo for Dana Lyseng and Wella for an international tour.
This video showcases the skill and abilities of Adam Keith, a master barber. Shot in Toronto and edited by Zak Ridge with my direction. I also created Adam’s icon and logo.
I shoot journalism-style images and studio work.
I’ve been shooting since I was a kid, when my grandfather gave me his old Brownie camera. People are my favourite subjects, and my journalism background finds me with a camera at events.

It’s better than Skype which …
