They embraced the journey. They showed up for each other. They did it for joy. This is the joy of arriving.

The Joy of Arriving with Portland Thorns FC

Role — Producer & Cinematographer

Type — Documentary

For three months, I traveled with the team to capture the historic run for the club’s third NWSL championship. This 21-minute documentary features exclusive interviews and never before seen footage of the Portland Thorns’ championship winning 2022 season. On the field and off of it, the players never lost sight of their goal, their purpose, or their teammates.
