After struggling with depression and overcoming adversity, Rory altered his life course to pursue his passions - choosing to celebrate life and establish an authentic career at the intersection of video production, thrill-seeking and music.

He travels the world to film some of their biggest performances, from major festivals to concerts to music videos. Rory has directed official music videos for Justin Bieber, The Chainsmokers, Tori Kelly and more - and his footage and life story came together to create Avicii's "The Nights" music video.
