The BROKESEED Films team is comprised of individuals who are not only some of my most trusted advisors and sources of creative inspiration but they each bring to the table a unique offering of strengths and perspectives.
Together we offer a diverse repertoire of expertise and experience. The ability to be dynamic and innovative to draw from our collective experience and create impactful pieces of art for our clients. The collaborative potential of this team is what I am most inspired by.
My strong standing relationship with these collaborators stretches back over two decades and over this time these individuals have inspired many aspects of what I do as a filmmaker and a creator. Much of what Brokeseed Films is all about is harnessing potential, cultivating the conditions to create impact, and bring life to what’s below the surface through the depth of storytelling and expert-level production.

Andrew started in the film industry as a young actor, co-starring in a network television series and more recently featured in a Netflix series releasing April 2021. His desire to get behind the camera was sparked when he started to shoot and share footage while traveling the world, teaching yoga and meditation. Over the years his portfolio has gathered a large range of projects including promotional content creation, feature films, visual art, travel filmmaking, and music videos. The inspiration of BROKESEED Films is the culmination of decades of global adventures, cultural explorations, deep self inquiry and desire to share ideas through film.
