CONVERSATION WITH OUR HERO INTERVIEW

QUESTION:
What goes through your head when you first wake up in the morning when you go hunting?
ANSWER:
The first thing that goes through my head when I wake up is how can I better myself today from what I was yesterday.
QUESTION:
Where is your favorite place to hunt?
ANSWER:
My favorite place to hunt would most certainly be out West. The scenery is unlike anywhere else. Capturing our lifestyle in remote environments out West is what motivates me.
QUESTION:
If you could do anything better, what would it be?
ANSWER:
There’s always room for improvement in life. I am always looking for ways to better myself as a cinematographer. In doing so, I always want to expand my creativity.
QUESTION:
Who are your heroes?
ANSWER:
I look up to filmmakers that push themselves to the limits in life. People such as Renan Ozturk. Innovators that set the bar.
QUESTION:
If there is any love­-hate relationship with any aspect of what you do, can you describe what that is?
ANSWER:
There’s a love­-hate relationship with having the drive to tell our story. As a filmmaker, I am constantly driven to be better and capture more. At the end of an adventure, I have never fully felt satisfied. This always brings me back for more each year to be better than I was before.
QUESTION:
What sound or noise do you love?
ANSWER:
I like the sound of wind blowing through pine trees in the mountains. It definitely let’s you know you’re alive.
QUESTION:
What would be your day job if you weren’t doing what you are currently doing?
ANSWER:
If I weren’t working in the hunting industry, I would most likely pursue a career as a physical trainer. I enjoy working out, and I enjoy helping people achieve their goals.
QUESTION:
If you could bring anybody in the world with you to do what you love (dead or alive), who would it be?
ANSWER:
Fortunately this dream has been a reality for me. I get to bring my dad along on some of my hunting trips. He brought me into this world, taught me to hunt, and appreciate the outdoors. Being able to share my passion and career with him has been a blessing.
