Scientist, Videographer, Human Being


The beauty of natural landscapes has captivated me all my life. I'm fortunate enough to have been able to work in some of the most pristine old-growth giant sequoia and coast redwood forests in California as a researcher at UC Berkeley in Professor Todd Dawson's lab.  I collaborate closely with forest ecologist, Anthony Ambrose.

Combining my passion for science with videography, I share the unique experience of studying the canopies of the world's largest and tallest trees with people around the globe from the perspective of scientists.

Big trees aren't the only interesting organisms on this planet. All life, big and small, has an important role to play on our complex and interconnected planet. My curiosity for the world around me has inspired me to make short videos about a variety of topics, either commissioned by clients or pet projects of my own. I hope the videos I produce will educate, inspire, entertain and engage others to enjoy and appreciate the beauty of the natural world.  

In this time of unprecedented change, what we hold dear can bring us together.
