Hello, my name is Tyler. I am an avid scuba diver, eagle scout, fraternity brother, and film Director. I live in Seattle, WA andstudy at  the University of Washington. I created this website for 2 main reasons:

  1. To showcase my work
  2. To share my lessons with the rest of the world.

For me, film is more than just a career, it’s a lifestyle. There is nothing more rewarding than watching someone become deeply affected by one of my films. It shows that my work is positively affecting the world, and thats a great feeling to have.



Giant Step Film is founded on the belief that a compelling story is the secret ingredient to creating a successful, relevant, and unique message. Since the formation of Giant Step Film, my crew and I have had the unique privilege of collaborating with organizations such as Microsoft, Phillips AED Supply Chain, The Boys and Girls Clubs of America, Youthforce, AdSpore, and many more. Seeing the impact of my work on the lives of others is the fuel that keeps me moving forward. It drives me through long weekends, and sleepless nights.

Thanks for visiting the site!
