Side Lake Retreat - 2016

"I am here alone for the first time in weeks, to take up my 'real' life again at last. That is what is strange—that friends, even passionate love, are not my real life unless there is time alone in which to explore and to discover what is happening or has happened." - May Sarton

"We simply need that wild country available to us, even if we never do more than drive to its edge and look in. For it can be a means of reassuring ourselves of our sanity as creatures, a part of a geography of hope." - Wallace Stegner

Time Lapse Mushrooms

Over the course of two days I left my camera on these fungi to show the motion that we normally can not perceive.  Shot on a 7D with remote shutter release timer set to 1 frame every 30 seconds.  I could almost call this a slug time lapse video.

Build Up

I filmed a time lapse video of a building construction from start to finish out in East Columbus.  It is now an orthodontist office, but it was once just a little empty lot.  Watch the transformation!  Thanks Evolutions Architecture for hiring me on for the job.

"Whoopie Pie!" Jones Wedding

Meghan and Austin and families threw a great wedding that was enjoyed by all who attended, especially the bridal party. Lots of laughter, drinks, and love were flying around the dance floor and the newlyweds that night. "Whoopie Pie!"

Robot Control

Here's an oldie but a goodie.  Since 2010 I've been making the videos and product pictures for CAS Data Loggers out of Chesterland, OH.  It's always fun to get to check out these amazing data machines in action, much like this 2012 ADwin Gold pendulum arm demonstration.  Kind of gives you the chills when you think about how only a few years from now, robots all over the world will have even more powerful sensors and response mechanisms.

Trampled by Turtles: In Pursuit

I and my team had a wonderful time hanging out in the Pursuit store, sipping on cold beer while talking with the super down-to-earth guys from Trampled by Turtles.  It was an in store concert event put on by Nate DeMars of Pursuit, one of several in the past and many more to come.  Community members and friends were invited to come in and enjoy a free performance by these Minnesota bluegrass musicians after they got fitted for new suits.  Enjoy!  Pursuit yourself!

Hot Minute with Hot Chicken

Here is one of a long series of videos that I shot and edited highlighting some of the employees, customers, and community partners of the award winning Columbus based Hot Chicken Takeover restaurant.  In this video we talk to Mikey of Mikey's Late Night Slice, another Columbus local restaurant force, released shortly before the collaboration between the two.

Spring Blossom

Here I filmed a time lapse video of the sex organs of an Amaryllis (its flower) in bloom over the course of a week.  I shot it on my Canon 7D using a timed shutter release of 8 minutes per frame.  I love how we can use technology to see motion where otherwise we would see none.  This shows that plants and other natural processes happen just the same as things on our time scale, only at their own pace.  Perhaps we can start to see our own reality not as the best or only way of viewing the world, but rather one on a wide spectrum of different ways to experience the cosmos.

Anglo-American Baseball Project

"King George V attended the original event in 1918 during WW1. We plan the second game for July 4, 2018 ... somewhere in England. Play ball!"  This video was put together under the creative direction of Jim Leeke in order to aid the awareness and fund raising of the Anglo-American Baseball Project.  Lots of stock footage, music rights and radio quality voice over.


This Amaryllis bloomed in just the right way that Amaryllises do. Just like all things do without even thinking about it or trying any harder than they do. Song Credit goes to: Whitebear – Lost in Vibrations p2.  Shot with a 7D and a timed shutter release, interval 1 frame every 5 minutes.  (Pro-tip: sleep with ear plugs if you intend to replicate this.)
