I WANT TO HELP YOU KICK ASS.

 

"the world's most competent swiss-army knife of a human being" - my friend David Rothschild (singer, songwriter, producer)

PHOTOGRAPHY / VIDEOGRAPHY

Photography and videography get me amped up like nothing else, and I love collaborating with other creatives to bring an artistic vision to life. I specialize in the following areas, and I love a creative challenge, so if you've got something not listed here - bring it on! If it's a good fit, I am all over it. I've been Eric Hutchinson's personal photographer and videographer for the last two years, including on several cross-country tours, and have also created photos, album art, tour admats, posters, and graphic design for a number of artists, including Julien Baker, Colbie Caillat, Anya Marina, Raye Zaragoza, and Skout.

I love doing:

TOUR MANAGEMENT

I am a human swiss-army knife, and I've done most jobs on the road: TM, photo, video, merch management. My current tour is as Raye Zaragaoza's TM/photographer/merch manager, as she opens for Dispatch in amphitheatres all summer. I've previously been assistant TM on bus tours hitting 1500-cap venues around the country. I've also assistant TM'ed a tour that consisted solely of fly dates, and been around the country with Eric Hutchinson as assistant TM/photographer/videographer several times. I also freelance advance shows for artists when needed. When I'm out as TM or assistant TM, I usually also serve as photographer. I love being on the road, I'm ridiculously organized, and I excel at creative problem solving - and more importantly, anticipating and addressing potential problems before they occur. My goal is for the whole tour team to be happy, healthy, hydrated, and performing at their best.


CREATIVE + STRATEGIC CONSULTING + WEB DESIGN

It's critically important to have a compelling brand and marketing to match, but the development and execution of your long-term goals is just as vital.

It helps to start with a killer website. I've designed websites for artists including Eric Hutchinson, Colbie Caillat, Raye Zaragoza, and Skout. I'd love to work with you on yours!

I can help you assess your current status as a brand, band, or creative and design a plan to achieve your goals. I'm pretty pro at taking daunting, big-picture objectives and breaking them down into smaller, achievable steps. 

Projects I've consulted on before include:

  • coordinating major music campaigns
    • it's an intimidating balancing act, but one I've gotten good at: keeping budgeting, deadlines, release marketing campaign, album art, promo photos, music videos, visual content, blogs, radio, social media, and more all on track and on schedule
  • album and product releases
  • tour planning
  • writing and recording an album
  • promotion/rollout campaigns
  • budgeting
  • breakdowns of major goals into a realistic timeline with achievable steps toward the end goal
  • career timeline mapping
  • strengths/weaknesses analysis

LIVE SESSIONS

My video partner in crime, Laura Valk/Skout, and I have a mobile recording kit that allows us to record professional audio + video anywhere. The video is color corrected and edited to professional standards, and the audio quality we can get on-site is INSANE. One time we recorded Skout live in the middle of the woods and you'd never know there were branches rustling and birds chirping and wind blowing. Laura's a sound engineering genius.

Our favorite things to film are:

  • live sessions
  • music videos
  • documentary/behind-the-scenes (tour, in the studio, etc.)
  • Skout's Out Loud Sessions (co-produced with Skout herself)

I also do solo film work, such as these music video projects for Eric Hutchinson's album Modern Happiness.

Here's one of our latest releases - Skout hit the studio with drummer Justin Heaverin and bassist Trevor Brown to record some tracks live:
