Encapsulate Music is the multi-media service which I conduct all of my video, photo and live audio related work. EM's main focus is on creating high-end concert coverage, as well as music videos, EPKs, studio documentaries and really anything else music related that you can think of. Previous work ranges widely from partnering with NBC to provide content for Last Call With Carson Daly, to filming promo material for Jagjaguwar's S. Carey and recording audio keepsakes for local Chicagoland talent. In 2012, EM teamed up with the web publication Made of Chalk to curate the live concert series Chalk TV (nearly 100 videos). During this time I had the opportunity to work with over 50 bands from around the globe, resulting in over half a million channel views to date. While the bulk of work I do revolves around music in some way, I am interested in taking on video projects of all kinds. I have covered multiple weddings as a primary and secondary videographer, fundraisers and other non-musical projects.

Included below are a few select videos that cover a few different corners of the video/audio spectrum.

"We hired Encapsulate Music to commemorate our biggest headlining show and record release. With everything leading up to the event, I felt a bit overwhelmed. Thankfully, Nick and his crew were entirely independent and professional - they arrived early and got in despite me forgetting to turn in the guest list. They knew exactly what to do and who to talk to in setting up audio and video. They got great shots and I didn't even notice them filming. I was most impressed with how they took ownership of the project and I didn't have to worry about a thing. The end result was that we were able to focus on putting on our best show, and then a few days later Nick presented us with this incredible video of the night. Some of our fans even mentioned the video looked better than the show did in person!"
