I make images, videos, and words for brands, businesses, and you. My work can be seen in print and on websites, most prominently on this one. Sometimes I build things, and other times I make things out of wood, clay, or food. I welded something once.

Alex-Waggoner

An artist so humble and sweet, talented above all as a painter living and working in Charleston, SC.  Waggoner's work merited some sort of filmic piece to document her process - if even for one brief moment in time. Your home won't look as good as her commission of it will.

Designed, invented, sourced, milled, shaped, carved, finished, and sold Avocado Boards since 2014. Solving the problem of serving avocados on the half-shell as the focus of a course in a food-retail setting (that wasn't guac or on toast)(nothing against them).
