What is your process for deciding on new series or videos, and their locations?
Ever since I was younger I have dreamt up and thought of unique and outlandish travel ideas. To this day I have a long list of different trips that I would love to embark on and more ideas pop up all the time. It really comes down to timing, budgets, and brand partnerships. If I had unlimited funds, I’d be checking off these trips left to right.
Have you been approached by brands to work on a video or campaign?
Yes, I’ve worked with brands like Land Rover, Rosetta Stone, Unesco, T-Mobile, American Express, Bota Box, and a few others. Some of these partnerships I have been approached to be a part of and others I have actively approached them.
What is some gear you can’t live without?
The obvious are my camera, computer, cell phone, and a hard drive. Oh, I love bags, so I have my fair share of travel bags from over the years. I can’t travel without my Exofficio underwear. If you’re unfamiliar, check them out. I pack a couple of those quick drying undergarments and I’m off!
You mentioned a video series you were working on in Tunisia. Can you tell us any more about that, and when we should expect it?
Unfortunately, I can’t say much about it. It was a location scout for a project we are currently developing. But hopefully, it is something I will be able to share in the coming months.
What’s the best way to reach you if someone wants to work with you?
What advice would you give to an aspiring travel filmmaker?
Just know that you don’t have to get on a plane or spend a ton of money to be a travel filmmaker. You can start by featuring your hometown, or the city you live in. You can jump on a bus or take a long walk. All are viable forms of transport and you would be surprised at all the stories you can tell. It is also a great way to get comfortable with filmmaking.
