About Me




I love to make short films. I grew up shooting short videos with friends from around the neighborhood on one of those video cameras that records to tape. Yep, I recorded to tape but at least I had a sweet camera to make post production a little bit easier to bear. Now these films weren't of the greatest quality but I learned to explore my imagination and put it on the screen. I loved this field so much that I decided to pursue it professionally so I attended Cornerstone University's film program. I spent many years developing and honing my skills  by directing and shooting short films.


After graduating in 2014, I went on to work on a couple of feature films in the Grip and Electric departments. These have been some of the best experiences I've had working on a film set. July 2014 I worked as Gaffer on the feature film, Josephine Doe. July 2015 I had the opportunity to work with the same crew on a feature film titled Wind.


In my spare time I continue to write and shoot  short films with friends. These are still the best sets to work on. The most recent addition to my portfolio is a short film titled Mordecai.  I worked as Director of Photography on this production and had the awesome experience to shoot in an abandoned pickle factory.


My adventures won't be ending anytime soon. This website is a central location to find all my latest endeavors. I hope you enjoy my work!
