To say that I stumbled into video production would be an understatement. I’ve always loved computers and anything techie. Tearing things apart, and sometimes even reassembling them, I have always had a fascination with how things worked and I love discovering something new.
I first studied computer science in college, but I wasn’t any good at it. I kept plugging away, not knowing what else to do. One day, I saw my youth pastor editing video and it was the most amazing thing I had ever seen. A light bulb almost literally came on — and I was hooked!
Jump ahead 15 years, and I can truly say my excitement for this work has never been stronger. There is a power in telling stories – they define and connect us. My favorite is when the story is one of hope or of something lost that is regained. It’s why I love working with nonprofits. Your stories are about real people and the difference your work is making in their lives.
I see that story in my three growing girls and in my amazing wife Natalie. I see the story of redemption all around me, and it is my own story as well. I really didn’t stumble into this; I believe I was led. Now I get the chance to share what I’ve learned along the way with you through Nonprofit Film School, and I’m excited for you to learn how to tell your story well.
