I'm a husband, a dad, a documentary filmmaker, and freelance producer/director/editor with a passion for helping people tell their own stories in their own words. My work has been featured on PBS, the New York Times, The Atlantic, Southern Living, Garden & Gun Magazine, The Oxford American, Eater, The Bitter Southerner, The Daily Beast, and others.
My family and I live in Water Valley, Mississippi, a quiet little town in northern Mississippi, in a house built in 1872. Recently we bought and have begun renovations on another old house just down the street that was built in 1864. We love old places. They exude the stories, passions, joys and heartaches of the people who were there before. Every room tells a story and we love to surround ourselves with stories,
From 2005 to 2015, I worked as a documentary filmmaker at the University of Mississippi's Southern Documentary Project and the Southern Foodways Alliance. Over that decade, I produced over 50 short films and four feature length films focused on the culture, food, music, history, and social issues of the American South.
In 2015, I left my position at the University of Mississippi to pursue a career as a freelance producer and director. Since striking out on my own, I've produced short films and commercial spots for Progressive Insurance, Garden & Gun Magazine, the Southern Foodways Alliance, Brand USA, South Carolina, Mississippi and Kentucky Departments of Tourism, among others.
