A born-and-raised native of Portland, PK received all of his higher education from Oregon academic institutions. After completing a two-year industry contract with Spirit Voyage Music, he returned to academia to teach undergraduate business at PSU while completing his doctoral research. A “niche generalist” and filmmaking entrepreneur, he spends most of his time in front of the camera but is happy to do whatever best serves a project. After cutting his teeth on a handful of independent and local productions, PK signed with Option Model & Media in 2016 and has maintained an active presence in the Portland Film scene ever since. In January 2019, he accepted a Strategic Development position at 4Horsemen Media Group and has a handful of projects in various stages of production. An eternal advocate for students and upcoming filmmakers, PK is always looking to bridge the chasm between established professionals and developing talent.
