I am a Dad, and I am loud and proud about it,  I dish it with the other mom's and dad's at the playground when my two year old is running around, we also love the beach and swimming at the pool.  When I get some "me time", I am a fan of just walking the aisles of Target about once a week.  I hit the Peloton bike hard (shout out to Hanah Corbin + Ally Love!) and I love sipping on wine while watching The Office on those "need to unwind" evenings.  Date nights for my wife and I are few, but when we find the time from that busy thing called real life, we love seeing what the beautiful downtown of this city has to offer.

I started Surrender Films in 2014. Since the start of my company I have filmed close to 400 weddings and feel like I've come close to seeing it all.  I have an amazing wife and two beautiful children.  I come from a family and live in a household that believes in equality.  Hokies class of 2003 for those that know! Before I did this wedding thing, I was a talking head on the local TV news doing sports.  Oh, and if you ask me to make you a toasted english muffin with cheese on your wedding day, it does sound odd as I am saying this out loud, but I will be honored :)

i will actually jump in a river for you
on your wedding day...just ask

So of all the events and weddings I have shot in my life, my best "claim to fame" story working on a production set was as a "crafty" when Tina Fey asked me on the movie set of "This is Where I Leave You" to make her a toasted english muffin with cheese.  There is so much more to this story, will be happy to share more details when we talk!
