I'm Tyler and I am a freelance videographer and editor based out of Scottsdale, Arizona and Portland, Oregon. I partner with brands, agencies, and entrepreneurs to create compelling video content.
Capturing and sharing cinematic moments of magic is what I live for.
I am inspired by the vast landscapes of our planet and the stories of the people that live here. I have 10+ years of experience in taking video projects through the entire production process with clients such as Airbnb, Columbia Sportswear, KEEN, Hilton and Marriott.
You can usually find me listening to Audible, making coffee, or scouting for shoot locations (when I'm not in the edit bay, of course).

"Tyler is an incredible videographer to work with. His creativity and commitment to the project was greatly appreciated! I look forward to working with Tyler again!"
- Samantha B. - Project Manager - Lululemon
"Tyler was an absolute joy to partner with on the creation of our recruitment video! He was able to bring our vision to life with his creative eye, collaborative spirit, and attention to detail. In addition, he was professional, prompt, communicative, and 100% reliable. Tyler delivered high-quality work, and I would strongly recommend him for your next project!"
- Brenda Ramsay - Creative Director - Paciolan
"Tyler is a needle in a haystack. I needed to shoot a promo video on a budget in MN (I live in NY) with lots of other moving parts. Tyler showed up and delivered the goods...organizing a studio and equipment for the shoot as well as trying to get the best takes possible and then crafting a great story in post production. He's a talented guy, great communicator and someone you can rely on to deliver your video project on time and in tune."
- Stephen C. - CEO - Sponsorcart
"Tyler was great to work with and delivered great quality of work against our brief. Tyler was able to quickly understand the look and feel we were going for and work autonomously to create the assets we were looking for. We realized that the timelines we had originally discussed were a bit too aggressive than anticipated and planned, but Tyler adapted and ensured we were receiving the most critical items still in a timely manner. I would recommend Tyler to anyone else looking for a strong and adaptable video editor, and look forward to working with him again."
- Phil B. - Marketing Director - ASICS
"Tyler was exceptional as our lead cinematographer/videographer. The quality of the work that he captured and also provided input on is incredible. He is definitely a stand-out talent, and can not emphasize enough how thrilled we were to work with him. He was able to take a rough brief and concept and bring it to life during 2 full days of filming which included: outdoor, variable lighting and unpredictable talent (over 20 dogs). He captured those moments (and more), which our internal team will use to tell stories and create social content over the next year. In addition he is genuinely a pleasure to work with. I'm looking forward to our next project so we can work with him again."
- Kirsten B. - Design Director - Canidae
"Tyler is not only one of the best creatives we have worked with but also a A+ professional. We look forward to working with Tyler on all our future video work."
- Jason Martin - CMO - Surface Tech
"Tyler was absolutely excellent to work with. He was so professional, knowledgeable, and really took the time to understand our vision. Selfishly, I don't want to recommend him because I want to keep him all to myself, but I CANNOT recommend him highly enough. He is absolutely phenomenal!"
- Payge K. - President - Wink Digital
"Tyler was professional and performed the job beyond our expectations. He communicates well and gave us everything we asked for. He arrived to the location on time and had all the gear needed to shoot the footage in order to complete our reel. He is easy to work with and is extremely thorough. Tyler even executed the job earlier than expected. We will definitely be working with him again soon and would recommend him to other business professionals who are looking to elevate their establishment to the next level. "
- Colleen G. - Owner - CWF Precision
"It was a genuine pleasure working with Tyler. Very professional, great communication, but more importantly he completely met our expectations of producing a high quality advertisement for our product. He has a clear talent when it comes to shooting and editing, and an overall great aesthetic. I would highly recommend him for any project and will certainly be using him again in the near future."
- Kevin C. - Owner - Humbra USA
"Tyler exceeded all expectations and delivered far beyond what I asked for. I had a beautiful experience working with him, as he brought my vision to life and made everything better than I could imagine. He’s a rare and unique individual where the client can fully trust and rely on the professional 100%. When presented with my ideas, he took them and made them so much better to the point where I wanted to keep throwing my ideas at him just so I can see how he flawlessly improves them. Thank you, Tyler, for your commitment in making your projects a work of art not only to complete the prompt of your clients’ requests, but a work that you can also be proud of."

He has clear and defined vision and a really solid work ethic. I hope we can work together more in the future!"
- Claire Petras - Social Media Manager - Columbia Sportswear

He understands the power of storytelling to drive impact and connect with the audiences, delivered high-quality technical expertise and productions. Tyler’s adaptability, flexibility and collaboration is second to none. He is responsive to new ideas and changes. He traveled across the country to capture compelling material.

We’re grateful that you were part of our team. Thanks Tyler!"

I plan to hire Tyler for additional projects."

But most importantly, since it was a quick deadline, I loved not having to go back and forth much. He delivered exactly what I was looking for."
