Spenser has decided to set aside his filmmaking career for the time being and pursue licensure as a mental health professional. He is in the Master's in Marital and Family Therapy Program at the University of San Diego.

Spenser is an award-winning filmmaker, photographer, podcaster, and skeptic. His passion for documentary filmmaking goes hand-in-hand with this love for telling stories that explore diverse aspects of human experience. His love for documentary crystallized when he completed his senior directing project, "Called", a story about a man called to serve the inner-city teens on the west side of Chicago. He continues to be inspired by new ideas, communities, and experiences.

Spenser is a champion of the scientific method and encourages the use of skeptical, evidence-based thinking to alleviate suffering in the world.

In his spare time, Spenser loves training for triathlons and experiencing the outdoors as much as he can.

Spenser graduated summa cum laude from Northwestern University with a degree in Film & Television. He has written video marketing content for large companies and produced commercial video work for organizations such as Karger Publishing, the Southern Environmental Law CenterWavefront Music Festival, and Chicago Public Schools.
