about

Aloha,

I am a writer, director, producer based in Honolulu. 

I specialize in writing, directing, and producing comedy.  Plus, I have a knack for action/thrillers.  Maybe it has to do with timing.  Both action/thrillers and comedy directing require a certain timing.  I think it also has to do with my sensibilities too.  

I own a boutique production company in Honolulu.  We shoot commercials, short films, web series, a local TV show, and feature films.  We are currently in post-production on a feature film based on our award-winning hit web series, Waikiki PD. One of our Youtube channels has over 43,000 subscribers and counting. We have been honored with several awards for our commercial and creative work.  Some of the recognition includes:  official selection at 2018 ITVFest, Sundance Fiction Directors Program, Sundance Feature Writing Program, Creative Lab Hawaii Web Series Graduate Fellow, Creative Lab Hawaii Producers Fellow.

We have a 5 star rating on Yelp.  I mention it because I think it’s important to create great work and be professional about it. I apply this level of customer service to all of our work.

In my free time, I hike, surf, and watch online classes to be a better filmmaker when I know that actually making films is probably the best way to learn.  I also help out at our local film collective, volunteer with a few non-profits, and play with my cats.

What people say...

Jeff at Orig Media really is as good as it gets! I had to find a great videographer...well I knew I found him when I looked at Orig Media's website. I was sold, and I couldn't have been more right on my decision! Jeff was so easy to work with, and very prompt with conversations. If you have the opportunity to work with Orig Media don't think twice! They're simply AMAZING!
