I traveled the world as a pro surfer from 18-20 until my first surf film Riding Waves introduced me to filmmaking. In the 10 years since I’ve been directing commercials and web videos for Corona, Patagonia, Poler, Yakima, Leatherman, Alaska Airlines, GoPro, Reef and others. In 2006 I was fortunate enough to win an Emmy award for my writing and 16mm cinematography in a project called “Next Wave” for Fox’s Fuel TV. In 2009 I founded Korduroy.tv. Through the ongoing support of Reef and Leatherman I am now documenting people and issues that affect the health of our planet and resiliency of our communities.
