This was a fun one to produce and edit. The Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority came to me to create a high-energy video that spoke to the achievements of the tourism industry on the region’s economy. The video was shown at their annual Partners in Tourism award ceremony last week, and it was a hit! Big thanks to the 40+ companies and people that helped make this video a success!
Back in June, I was hired by UCS Spirit for a fun product shoot involving some incredible National and Olympic athletes.

So pumped to see my photo story about the closing and demolition of Tommy’s Pub & Club being featured in the October issue of Charlotte Magazine.

Currently creating a photo book showcasing a more rounded selection of photos from the bar’s last year. Stay tuned to learn how you can get one!

Had a great time covering the 2015 Visionary Women event this past weekend and listening to inspiring women like Lauren Bush Lauren, founder and CEO of FEED, speak about their accomplishments. Todd Murphy Events did an astounding job transforming the Mint Museum’s space into an Safari-inspired masterpiece. Faux grass turf was rolled in and laid throughout the room, vibrant colored drapery was hung from the ceiling, wooden chargers and copper Moscow Mule mug accents adorned each table and small details like the African sashes for the wait staff rounded out the theme.
