    I’m what happens when you mix a car guy with a design nerd. My fascination with how things function is matched only by my passion for how things look. These two principles are the foundation of "work that works," connecting brands to their ideal customers through compelling creative. My vision in creating Four Man Furnace was to deliver the highest quality work for clients by collaborating with them directly, in a way that big agencies just can’t. And since 2008, it’s been working great.

    I started as a staff photographer at the Dallas Morning News, where I was part of the team that won a Pulitzer Prize for our coverage of Hurricane Katrina. Since then, I’ve focused on motion work in high-intensity, diverse, and often sensitive situations. I’ll do anything to get the shot, from swimming in the frozen Bering Sea to chasing daylight in the backcountry of Texas. My family likes to brag that I’m an Emmy-nominated director, but at heart I’m still a photojournalist, always hunting for, and finding, our next great story.
