Hi There! I'm the Founder and Lead Videographer at Summit Hill Studios.
My family and I live just minutes from downtown Stillwater where Summit Hill Studios is located. We also have a Guinea pig named Felix who loves car rides, carrots and naps in the yard.
Fresh out of High School I took an internship at 101.3 KDWB with intentions to take a year off from school and just party, have some fun and then go get a real job next year.
That one year became 20 years of having a blast being a local radio broadcaster on 101.3 KDWB, Cities 97, KOOL 108 & BUZ’N 102.9. I was also the Production Director for 100.3 KFAN and coordinating producer for the Minnesota Vikings Radio Network.
During that time I won three Minnesota Broadcasters Association awards.
In 2013 I decided that I wanted to spend more time with my family, so I retired from the fast life of full-time broadcasting and started a new journey. That's when I created Summit Hill Studios!
I love the process of filming a couple’s wedding day and then turning that raw footage into a beautiful love story. It’s my favorite puzzle...you provide the pieces and I put it all together to tell your story.

A typical day at my house is like going to the circus, a scary movie and the Minnesota State Fair Midway all at once. It's BONKERS, but I wouldn't have it any other way. My wife and partner of 12 years, Michelle, and I are prisoners (parents) to four kids that run the place.
Hello Haley, Aiden, Penny & Lucy!
MY WIFE MICHELLE, SON AIDEN AND DAUGHTER PENNY...OH AND SANTA!
Whether I'm traveling for pleasure or for work, it's always one of my favorite things to do!
I especially enjoy deep sea fishing and have caught some humdingers in Costa Rica, San Francisco and Tampa Bay.
So far this year I'm booked to travel to film weddings in Sonoma, California, Honolulu, Hawaii and at a castle in Toulouse, which is located in Southern France!
