About me

I love to imagine things and then bring them into some semblance of reality. I also shoot/edit video, with a dash of motion graphics. I run a small team called Wildcard Crew, video-making extraordinaires.

I can watch documentaries, visit museums, zoos, aquariums and go hiking ad nauseam, particularly in awe of the natural world.

  5. This video features views of The Caves at Inverloch, Victoria, Australia. A well known as site for prehistoric fossils of dinosaur bones and other creatures. It's known to me and my family as our best fishing spot, and a place we got trapped once by a rising tide.

  6. Our family has been going to Inverloch for generations, but I had never explored the beaches quite like this.
    The rock formation, though wasting away, resembles the top of Australia.
    Music: CMA - You're free
    Shot in 4k.

  7. Peak bloom of the Sakura is short lived, and ends in a rain of blossom petals.

    I thought I would miss out this year! Caught these moments outside my apartment the day I got back from Australia.

  8. Wilson's Promontory is lashed by the wind and waters of the Bass Straight. The foothills of forested granite mountains are etched, broken and tumble down into the churning blue. The boulders of broken headlands mark the boundaries of sweeping, white sand beaches.

    Beaches featured: Tidal River, Squeaky Beach, Whisky Bay... continue reading (0, 0 images)

  9. Mountainous region west of Tokyo. Only a couple of hours by train from Shinjuku!
