"About six years ago, I discovered gifs. I was working on a job in Vegas when my good friend Josh introduced me to Reddit. From that moment, I was hooked! I fell in love with the simplicity of storytelling, lack of audio and the ease of sharing with all my friends and family.
It wasn’t until a year later that I figured out how to make my own. At first, they were simple and extremely choppy. I would even submit gifs I made to see how they did on Reddit. Eventually my curiosity and style grew and I figured out how to direct motion into my everyday photoshoots. I also discovered the power of editing and how to make the story even stronger by adding and removing frames. Without a doubt, motion is an integral and necessary part of the world we all live in.
Original gifs have been created for companies such as HBO, Head & Shoulders, Deutsch, MMC and Entertainment Weekly."
