Untold stories + Beautiful aesthetic
Hi. I’m Daniel: I’m a cinematographer
Video has been a strong theme in my life. Growing up in the midwest, my friends and I carried camcorders everywhere we went. As high schoolers, we made short films - we liked to compare them to Monty Python - and while studying film in college, I had the opportunity to travel to Ethiopia to document HIV relief work. That changed everything.
I saw the potential to use video to change lives. To bring awareness. To share stories that matter.
So, I finished school, packed everything I owned into my Geo Prizm, and moved to Baltimore. Over the next 7 years, I produced and filmed with agencies, production houses, indie producers, and friends, collaborating with some of the most inspiring brands and companies across the world. Baltimore, New York, Grand Rapids, Dallas, Los Angeles, Reykjavík, London, São Paulo, Addis Ababa. I work hard, have an easy personality, and am devoted to the study of my craft.
I believe : In the ink of expectation. That there's redemption in pain. That easy isn't automatically better. Those moments in life - they're better next to friends. Collaboration > solo. Family is key.
