I love telling stories! Since I can remember, I have always been fascinated with photography and filmmaking. From pinhole cameras and 35mm film in grade school to filming friends skateboarding and surfing videos in high school, cameras are a part of my life story. I am one of the fortunate minority who have been able to build a career out of their favorite past time and I couldn't be more excited about what the future has in store.
Since starting my video production company, Berad Studio, I have been able to travel across the globe creating documentaries and social media content for some of the biggest brands in Hawaii, and that has lead me to love exploring new places. Travel is something that makes me a better filmmaker, a better husband, and a better human.
Six years ago, I was able to start investing in my own dream of building a video production company in Hawaii where I grew up. I've been able to work with some of the biggest brands in Hawaii producing marketing and commercial content and specialize in strategic branded videos for digital distribution.
After working in Los Angeles for 6 years, I couldn't find a job or a community of creatives to collaborate with, so I decided to build my own. Hawaii Shoots is a creative community that connects filmmakers & photographers through hosted workshops, meet ups & artist features.
