Signature Healthcare, Commercial
December 2018

This commercial was a joy to produce and direct. The client wanted to feature middle-age people still performing at a high physical level. I was able to achieve this through a dramatic story in revealing this age group performing several activities.

The client wanted to show that they served a diverse population and we achieved this through the fabulous lifestyles on the Outer Banks. I directed this commercial to showcase the feeling of an active population and liefstyle.

Drone Portfolio

I am a licensed Drone pilot and having a cinematic background gives me the best perspective when taking to the air. The skill and precision to fly a drone mixed with a cinematic approach makes for some amazing shots.

"Early" was the theme of this commercial, I was able to capture that in every shot as I directed this piece of art.  There are some impressive scenes in this commercial that I feel depict the morning glow and releate directly to the objective of this commercial to detect cancer "Early"
