I traveled the world as a pro surfer from 18-20 until my first surf film Riding Waves introduced me to the world of media production. For the past 10 years I’ve been directing commercials and web videos. In 2006 I was fortunate enough to win an Emmy award for my writing and 16mm cinematography in a project called “Next Wave.” In 2009 I founded Korduroy.tv, which continues to promote the work of outdoorsy creatives. In 2012 I was asked to return to professional surfing through the support of Reef and Leatherman. Today I can be found traveling around and documenting interesting people and beautiful places.
All of my past surf films can be watched here.
My latest project was the 20 minute surf film “Compassing" about a two month surfari in search of freedom.
This is a short documentary commissioned by the Basque Cultural Center about their culture.
Here’s a road trip I took to Central California during this last run of good waves.
