2016: Year in review

As 2016 comes to a close, reflection and gratitude are top of mind. I have strived to create an agile and intimate storytelling company since 2010. Each year, I've experienced significant learning and growth and each year, the projects I've worked on have become more interesting and challenging.

2016 has been a particularly memorable year. One in which we produced more awesome content than ever before for an awesomely diverse set of clients. We produced work for Akamai, Counsyl, 826 Valencia, Pinterest, Castlight Health and with my good friends at French Press Films projects for Lookout, Ubisoft and First Republic. I'm really proud of the accomplishments and growth of 2016 and looking forward to maintaining strong relationships in 2017 as well as discovering and developing new ones in 2017.

There is so much happening in San Francisco and Silicon Valley and I feel fortunate to be able to tell the stories of innovation, diversity, and development.

Happy Holidays!

826 Valencia - Help bring writing to life

826 Valencia, a nonprofit organization founded by Dave Eggers (yes, that Dave Eggers) and Nínive Calegari in 2002, commissioned Ronin Productions to craft this piece to highlight one of its newest programs at Buena Vista Horace Mann School, in SF's Mission District. Our task was produce a piece that captured the spirit of this program and the culture of 826 Valencia as a whole. If you find yourself in the Mission, you should definitely stop by their wickedly awesome pirate supply store.

The Naked Filter From Liquidity

Creating video for a mission driven company, with big ambition backed up by groundbreaking technology is definitely our sweet spot. We are fortunate to be based in the San Francisco Bay Area, where there are many companies like liquico.com working to make an impact not just locally, but worldwide.

The Story of 3 Fish Studios

I had the pleasure of shooting this piece with director, Jeremy Belzer-Adams, earlier this year. Eric Rewitzer, one half of the 3 Fish duo, creates beautiful and unique bay area themed prints taking inspiration from the various landscapes available to those of us fortunate to reside here.
