Father the Flame

What is light without dark? 

 

 

Bio

With a background in fine arts, I received a Bachelor of Arts in Art and Communications from Calvin College with an introduction to film by Compass Film Academy in 2004. However my main education came on set shooting narrative and commercial work and was enhanced by working as an assistant and operator on feature films during the booming, but short-lived Michigan film incentive scene from 2009 to 2012. I added documentary to my lineup with ED'S STORY: IT AIN'T OVER, which garnered attention from SXSW and Telluride among other festivals, while at the same time began a personal journey with FATHER THE FLAME, a feature doc now nearing completion.

Whatever I'm working on, I'm drawn to naturalistic imagery with strong emotional impact.
