So here's a dorky little thing my family and I made a couple months ago for the Annabelle: Creations short film contest. We had a fun few hours together being silly in the country. Starring my oldest son, Carter, and my middle kiddo, Nolan (the cute toe-head with the glasses), as well as my wife (their mother), Michelle, playing the creepy child-snatcher.

An overview of more "corporate" style and promotional videos done for fellow artists, churches, and non-profits.
Informational video created in partnership with Ridge Point Church in Holland MI.
This is the anniversary piece I did for Tribes Church in Rockford MI. It is comprised mostly of footage I took throughout the year I was with them.
Acting reel I cut together for my good friend, August Kensington.
This is the last video I did for Tribes; I had around 14 mins of interview footage and had to cut it down to less than 4 while still maintaining the point of the story.
This is a project I was absolutely honored to be a part of: Compassionate Heart Ministries' (Zeeland) Summer Serve camp.
This is a short motion graphics video I did for a TV series I'm developing; I am still exploring motion graphics because I don't have much experience with them.
I am currently helping a dear friend and local musician with publicity and marketing; this is a video I shot and edited from one of his recent gigs.
This is one of my favorite videos I produced while attending Compass College of Cinematic Arts (Grand Rapids): the behind-the-scenes featurette for thesis film, "My Father's Garden".
