About

Long before I started telling stories behind a camera, I was telling them on paper with words and crayons.  With that said, I'm not surprised to find myself here today.

Whether for documentary, narrative, corporate, or commercial projects, I am passionate about communicating ideas and telling stories through film and video.  In today's fast-paced society, if you can capture the viewers attention and evoke an emotional response from them for even a moment, that is everything.  That's a challenge I gladly accept with each project that comes my way.  My work has been mentioned in BBC News, New York Times, Huffington Post, Slate.com, The Seattle Times, and Psychology Today. In 2016, I received a NW Regional Emmy nomination for a segment I produced, shot, and edited.

I am more than willing to be a one-man crew if that is what best fits your projects needs, but I love collaborating with other artists and filmmakers as well.  If you would like to share more about your projects and ideas with me, and hear some of mine, don't hesitate to contact me.

Director :: Producer :: Editor

In April 2014 Closure had it's Pacific Northwest television broadcast premiere on KCTS 9's "Reel NW" series, and in November 2014 it will have it's national cable broadcast on ASPiRE TV

 

Tucker’s triumph as a director comes in the weaving of these issues into Angela’s story with compassion and obvious concern for his subjects as their uncertain future unfolds.

This film can knock you around, but to its credit, there’s a strong thread of love throughout it all, which keeps you from getting knocked too far. It is ultimately, for all the hills and valleys, a very positive, uplifting film.
