'𝘈 𝘮𝘰𝘷𝘪𝘦 𝘪𝘴 𝘢𝘣𝘰𝘶𝘵 𝘩𝘶𝘮𝘢𝘯 𝘣𝘦𝘪𝘯𝘨𝘴, 𝘢𝘣𝘰𝘶𝘵 𝘩𝘶𝘮𝘢𝘯𝘪𝘵𝘺.'' — 𝐀𝐛𝐛𝐚𝐬 𝐊𝐢𝐚𝐫𝐨𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐦𝐢 ▬ 𝐖𝐇𝐘 𝐌𝐎𝐕𝐈𝐄𝐒? ▬ 𝐒𝐭𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐬 𝐢𝐦𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐯𝐞 𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐥𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐬. Everyone has a favorite movie. Usually, it's something that influenced their worldview or even changed how they behave. When I started researching brain activity during movie-watching, I discovered that stories have measurable impact. 𝐒𝐭𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐬 𝐞𝐜𝐡𝐨 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐜𝐞𝐬𝐬. A narrative is nothing more than a series of events that our brains naturally connect as 𝘳𝘦𝘭𝘢𝘵𝘦𝘥 and 𝘤𝘢𝘶𝘴𝘢𝘭. This is EXACTLY how inductive learning happens! 𝐒𝐭𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐬 𝐞𝐧𝐠𝐚𝐠𝐞 𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐭𝐬 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐝𝐬. After watching Andrei Tarkovsky's ''𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘚𝘢𝘤𝘳𝘪𝘧𝘪𝘤𝘦'' (1986), I was so moved by its cognitive effect that I devoted my life to make movies that would help people better connect to one another. In my opinion, the biggest impact we can have on adult learning and development is through corporate learning. We spend most of our time working; our jobs contribute to who we are; and how we grow depends largely on the skills we pick up during the times we are clocked in.

I want to help you use this powerful, yet misunderstood technique. I studied the intricate history of how cinema developed as an artform, and I obsess over where media, marketing, and education are going. Filmmaking is an obsession. As of today, I’ve seen over 15,000 films and I continue to enjoy movies. 𝐈 𝐚𝐦 𝐞𝐪𝐮𝐚𝐥 𝐩𝐚𝐫𝐭𝐬 𝐚𝐫𝐭𝐢𝐬𝐭 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐭𝐞𝐜𝐡𝐧𝐢𝐜𝐢𝐚𝐧. I manage complicated projects that typically overwhelm others, and have vast experience in everything ranging from marketing to feature films to learning and development. I am passionate about helping companies build inspired cultures, empower employees through their innate gifts, and make a positive, lasting impact on the world. ▬ 𝐂𝐎𝐍𝐓𝐀𝐂𝐓 ▬ ✉ ☎ (802) 282-3666  (720) 378-8340 Directing | Storytelling | Video Production | Cinematography | Film Production | Commercials | Video | Video Editing | Videography | Postproduction | Motion Graphics | Photography | Short Films | Web Video | Animation | Lighting | Media Production | Digital Media | Camera Operation | Digital Video | Visual Effects | Community Relations | Mentorship
