Born in the cold, thin air of the Rocky Mountains, AK has a penchant for wild exploits. From cycling and snowboarding, to cloud watching and coffee making (okay, some are more “wild” than others). This spirit of adventure is what drove him to move to the great city of Los Angeles in 2010. In 2013, he received his Masters in Film Directing from the USC School of Cinematic Arts. Beyond his formal education he has also studied under director Gore Verbinski and shadowed under Ruben Fleischer. He has also received a variety of awards and accolades from film festivals throughout the United States, Italy, and China. As a commercial director, his clients include New Belgium Brewing, Lamborghini, K2 Sports, Potatoes USA, California Almonds, and others. He is currently developing two feature films.

Drop him an email and say howdy.
