It all started back in high school when I "borrowed" my mom's VHS-C camcorder. Hoping to become the James Cameron of skateboarding and surf videos, I spent more time capturing kick flips and editing epic waves than riding a board.
Fast forward almost 30 years! Now, I am the creative director and founder of Berad Studio headquartered in Honolulu, Hawaii. Over the last 12 years, I've worked with brands like Hawaiian Airlines, Hawaii Tourism, OluKai, UNIQLO, 7-Eleven, HMSA and many other amazing brands to share the stories that strengthen brand.
During that time, I've also cultivated a community of creatives and image makers under the brand Hawaii Shoots. We host workshops, networking events and hands on training for businesses, entrepreneurs and content creators to help hone their craft for storytelling and video production.
My hope is to intentionally bridge the gap between my production work and my desire to help others in the art of story. If that's you, I would love to chat!
