Five Aces Media started with snowboarding, because filming snowboarding is what introduced me to film making. I realized early on that I was not going to make it as a pro snowboarder but I did see a future in film making. I filmed whatever interested me and soon found another passion for hiking and nature photography.

Naturally I began documenting what I found outside. Eventually I realized that there is a lot more to be found in nature than just sights and sounds. I saw things in myself and the world around me that were invisible before.

My goal with Five Aces Media today is to capture those symbolic experiences in nature that have helped me understand the world.
