Aerial Filmmaker - ESPN, HuffPost, CBC (Credited Footage)

Few years ago, I purchased a drone started flying around, but eventually after a few weeks, I wanted to do more with the drone. I shot some Real Estate videos for friends, which eventually lead to other paid opportunities. After a couple of years, my work has appeared on ESPN, HuffingtonPost, CBC News, CTV News and other national new broadcast stations. Also, I've covered properties with a total value of over $250 Million.

Outside of flying drones, I love product development with a passion in design and user experience.
