My life mission is to help us connect in deeper human ways. Your audience needs you in ways that only you can show up for them. And I'm here to help you do that.

I started creating videos online over a decade ago. The fact that we can connect over thousands of miles through the screen still blows my mind. The power of video to have a profound impact on so many people is one that text, photos, and even face-to-face can't even compare to in many ways.

I’m here to give you the tools to express yourself and your brand through video because you and your brand have a message worth sharing.

Much love, my friends. See you in the course!

Frequently Asked Questions



Can't I learn all this for free on YouTube?

As you've probably experienced, most free information online is quite scattered and non-specific. And most of all, you have no way to ask your specific questions. And that's the problem. Building your studio, in your unique floor plan, with your unique branding needs, to fit your unique on-camera appearance, etc... requires unique guidance. That's why the Dream Studio Course, is specifically designed to get you results in YOUR specific situation - something you just cannot get from passively watching hours of YouTube videos.

Unless you purchase the Lite version of the course (which is entirely self-serve), you'll get personalized feedback and access to expert guidance to get the results you're after. This is not just another generic videography class.


When does the course take place?

The last day to enroll in this upcoming cohort is Monday October 18th (Pacific Daylight Time US end of day). Class begins on October 25th.
