Director + DP + Filmmaker

Eli is a Director, DP, and Filmmaker specializing in tech commercial and adventure documentary storytelling.  He is also creative director & partner of Delve Creative a film & video production agency based in Bend, OR.

Eli is storyteller and adventurer at heart and his creative skillset touches all aspects of production.  His work has taken him around the globe doing everything from directing commercials for Samsung in LA, to DP'ing Lair of the Sawfish for Discovery Shark Week in the Florida Keys, to shooting big mountain skiing for Merrell in the Alps.  Eli recently directed Beat Monday, an adventure racing series for Outside TV and is co-directing "Unjumpable" an upcoming feature documentary about London's most notorious urban BASE jumpers.  When he’s not on location you’ll find him in the edit bay cutting projects for clients like Facebook, GoPro, Instagram, Discovery Channel and many more. 

At his core Eli is a documentary filmmaker and stories about incredible people and the extraordinary things they do are what get him most excited.  Eli got his start creating films for leading non-profits World Relief and The Justice Conference and believes the more stories we tell about inspiring people, the more it will inspire the rest of us to do something great with our lives.   He's met incredible people filming in over 25 countries and through telling their stories has discovered that life doesn't have to be mundane.  Live for something that matters, and make the world around you a better place.
