CINEMATOGRAPHER + DESIGNER

Since studying graphic design and photography in college, I've had a passion for both. I began my career as a designer working with The Buntin Group, the Nashville CVB, and even ran my own design studio for a bit. At that time, most of my clients needed a website which led me to work with a digital agency, Cabedge. After learning as much as I could about web design and development, I moved on to help turn Paramore/Redd into Paramore Digital.

Even though design was initially my main focus, I've always been able to incorporate photography and/or video into my work. I've been pursuing video/film more lately and truly love it. I've been fortunate to work with some incredible clients such as Cracker Barrel, LinkedIn, Exxon Mobil, Lifeway, YWCA, Vanderbilt, and Gatlinburg. And I've won a few awards along the way including 9 Gold ADDYs, 7 Silver ADDYs, 'Best of Show' ADDY (Film/Interactive), .NET 'Site of the Month', 4 AIGA Awards, and 4 American Graphic Design Awards.

 
We shall not cease from exploration and at the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.
