I’m from Northwest Indiana, in the shadows of Chicago on the south end of Lake Michigan. The shoreline there is a mixture of beautiful sand dunes and steel mills as big as cities. Living in Chicago in my mid-twenties I decided to buy a longboard and head to Samoa and learn how to surf. That experience inspired me to make a surf film. A long journey later and the resulting film is Hangs Upon Nothing. I now live in Connecticut where my son and I have some awesome adventures.
