When I went on a climbing trip to Brazil in 2009, with Renan Ozturk, I had just bought a video camera and loaded Final Cut Pro onto my rickety laptop. A month later, I was loving Brazil so much, I ended up staying an extra two months, and shot and climbed the entire time. When I came home I had SO much footage, and decided I should try to put together a short film to enter into film festivals. This was the beginning of what has become a career within a career. I’ve been lucky to shoot short films in Australia, Malaysia, all around the western united states since then! Here is Pra Caramba!
Now three years later, I am still passionate about climbing and filmmaking. I sometimes struggle with finding the balance between these two passions but in the end they are complimentary, and whether I am hanging off the side of a cliff filming or climbing, I feel like I’m living my own personal version of the DREAM!!! Here is my most recent work, that features fellow TNF athlete Sam Elias defying gravity.
